MikeB: Thanks Mike for your comments. I am allowed to make small mistakes, I should have said Channel 43 that carries & affects the BBC programmes!! Almost all the other programmes, ITV, Channels 4 & 5 etc. all show 10 signal level but the "condition" is also around 10, making them perfect. It so happens that my neighbours around here are also having BBC reception problems.

I keep losing BBC News HD,(Freeview 107). It seems that loss of Ch33 & Ch35 are the cause and affects all the programmes on those channels. Checking the "signal level" it shows 10, but on "signal condition" it is 0, at these times of loss. My rooftop aerial faces Sutton Coldfield transmitter. I use a Panasonic TV TX-40AX630B. I also have BT Vision installed. Post Code ST15 0PQ. The signal levels from the Wrekin transmitter are fairly high as we can see the Wrekin.
A new phone mast in Stone has completely blocked BBC1 & 2 on channel 45
Is it 4G radiation that causes poor signal quality?

Having problems with TV background music?
Sunday 23 September 2018 8:55PM

I am quite "hard of hearing" so to hear speech I have to have the volume fairly high. An important point missed, is that loud sounds can be just as painful to the hard of hearing, as they are to people with normal hearing people. With the volume higher and the added mu-sick/noise, very often that painful and damaging level is reached.
I always have to use headphones to listen to TV and radio, sadly this makes the situation worse. Often I have to give up watching a programme and record the remainder to see when the headache clears.
Why do they add noise during news headlines and summaries?
