Oxford (Oxfordshire, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Saturday 28 September 2013 9:37AM

We live in Highworth (Wilts) and take our Freeview signal from the Oxford transmitter and have been suffering a frequent and persistent loss of signal for the last two weeks, as have others in our neighbourhood. Even tried fitting the at800 filter in case some 4G work may be impacting our signal - It made no difference.
Last night was particularly bad with significant loss of signal for long periods during many popular programmes. Loss was apparent at times across most Mux groups although not necessarily at the same time. Problem is still there this morning althought this web site is saying that our Oxford tramsmitter has no reported problem.
Please - Can someone please advise what is or could be the source of the problem (have already tried recommended system actions at this end). I can only assume that it must be the transmitter in some way - if not actual work taking place, could it be down on power?
Even before the full switchover to digital our signal performance was rarely this bad.
