Winter Hill (Bolton, England) transmitter
Friday 21 February 2020 11:25AM

Having looked at the aerial more closely from the ground, it seems the installer had fitted it with the connection box the wrong way up (on top of the boom, rather than underneath), so I guess rainwater probably got in to it, explaining why it worked well initially, but less so now, and it was just a coincidence that the signal degradation happened just when the Winter Hill changes did.
Luckily, though the scaffolding for the roof job is being taken down as we speak, there's enough in the relevant area to give access for a fix.
