Freeview reception has changed? | Freeview Interference
Sunday 20 November 2011 10:42AM

My post code is NN11 2JS, I run a wide band aerial on the highest point of my property with a 4 way booster and have replaced all my cables with foil encase co axial (satellite) cable. I have been able to get all the Freeveiw channels for 99% of the time but, in the last 2/3 weeks I am getting a "no or poor signal" message every night when I want to watch TV and this is infuriating me as they are the channels I like to watch most. The channels affected are 11,19,20,29,37,43,46 & 82, amongst others. I was told by a lady at Digital TV that this is due to engineers working on the Sandy Heath transmitter. I find this difficult to believe especially at 11pm at night. I am inundated with customers at my local electrical shop complaining about the same problems. I have aligned with Sandy rather than Sutton Coalfields as this is recommended for my location and Sutton C does not cover Northamptonshire local news.
I do hope after all the changes we have, and are still, going through (retune on the 23rd) and the hype about digital TV this standard of reception is not going to be the norm, or is it?
