Sorry I seem to have lost a post. It said thanks Chris. The type of aerial is similar to labgear 10 element professional high gain, small differences but 10 elements. I think I will try my local aerial engineer and see if he can fix it knowing what we've discovered without trial and error. If not I can probably live with Standard Definition on these channels. Many thanks for your help in raising my understanding and good luck. Keep up the good work.
Cheers

One thing I think is strange is why only 626MHz, the other mux's seem ok, maybe they have enough quality to begin with, so don't drop out completely. Does this mean I only have to find a way to increase the quality of 626 MHz? The signal strength doesn't drop out in any of the channels.

Thanks again Chris. Good information to have when speaking to the aerial installer. The other HD channels are fine on both com 7 and 8. The SD channels are the same all have signal quality at 100% and strength at 97%. The quality drops to 50 % but with no loss of picture when planes go over.

Chris I got a new aerial fitted log-periodic 14 elements SAC AE0968, with a 4G filter and booster. Channel 40 works fine with no fallout due to planes passing over as do most channels. The issue I have now is Com7&8 now seem to have not enough quality(0)/signal(74) to show a picture. Any ideas?

Installer is on his way back thanks. Is combining both aerials together an option?

Hi Chris with one thing and another I haven't managed to be available for the aerial installer yet, soon I hope. What I have noticed is that on occasion when blackhill stops broadcasting for a very brief moment of time my tv auto-tunes into other transmitters, I had bbc1HD from Craigkelly the other day. I have changed the auto settings for this. However I wonder if on Com7 I am receiving it from darvel or craigkelly as they all seem to broadcast on the same frequency, 746kHz. COM8 seems to have settled down and is ok. Any thoughts.

The other multiplexes are all showing 100 on quality and signal, more or less. They all work great.

I still have the high gain aerial connected and have now fitted a filter and booster and it works ok on the other tv, which is only dvt not dvt2, many thanks again.

Hi Chris, I managed to get the aerial fitter back and all channels are now working really well. Thanks again for all your help, it has got me to this point. Great.

He turned the aerial, log, a little further east, where he got the better signal on com7 and 8, without reducing the other muxes. I believe these channels, 55&56 will be stopping in my locale, G61 3PD, at the end of February. Hope this is helpful.
