Sudbury (Suffolk, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Monday 2 November 2015 10:08PM

I live in Ipswich at IP1 3RD, and I (try) and get Freeview via an expensive high-gain aerial in my roof space, with an aerial splitter/amplifier. I am served by the Sudbury transmitter, and I cannot receive any other station.
However,since Saturday evening I have seen loss of some or most of the channels with a very variable signal strength. EG the BBC multiplex varies between a picture, then breakup, then the decoder reports no signal. This is affecting most of the services, such as BBC, ITV, channel5 and a lot of the other assorted ones.

I assume this is caused by the weather conditions, with a distant station interfering with the Sudbury signal. This has been going n for some days, which means very poor value for my TV licence. Is anything going to change the situation for the future, or should I go for Freesat? At least the dropouts there are relatively short duration.
