I live in a high part of north Bristol and receive transmissions from Mendip. I've being checking reception of Services prior to switching from a Yagi aerial to a Log Periodic. I have two queries:
1. After a recent rescan I've lost COM7 services on Channel 55. Information re Mendip on the Freeview channel list | website says "We are operating on reduced power and some sections are currently offline. We are working to restore access to these pages and thank you for your patience." I know COM7 is doomed in the long term but can I expect it to be restored in the interim? If not, how will services like BBC Four HD be provided?
2. I've tabulated Services against Channels and have found that I receive six Services (including Made in Bristol) on Channel 31 (MUX LBS?). The information I have for Mendip doesn't mention Channel 31 so from where is this channel being transmitted?
Thanks for any information

StevensOnln1 & Chris.SE: Thanks for your responses. It's good to know that C55 has a long future, even though I still can't get it via a manual tune at the moment. That's a little mysterious as I'm still using the Yagi that was receiving C55 in December. I hope to receive and install a Log Period soon and I hope that will restore C55 services.
The FreeView prediction shows that Kings Weston is the only possible source of C31 even though the channel is transmitted in V polarity and my aerial is H.
