I live in North London (Barnet N20). News HD Channel and some others for me disappeared some time back. Couldn't work out why as they are still on Crystal Palace. I finally worked out that my aerial is pointing at Reigate and not Crystal Palace. Similar direction for Reigate and Alexandra Palace and when you are up on the roof on a windy day ....
I was able to manually tune to a weak Com7 signal on Crystal Palace.
Might help some people who assume they are pointing at Crystal Palace.

I'm in Lower Preston (TQ3 2DH). I have an aerial in the loft, black tipped, I think wideband. For SD channels I get 90% signal strength, 100% quality, no errors. For HD channels, signal quality and strength is low and usually so bad that I get no reception. My Samsung TV says BER 2000, signal strength zero, then sometimes works.
It has been like this for at least three years. Is anyone else getting similar problems from Beacon Hill?
I am suspecting some kind of 4G or 5G interference locally. I have a yellow tipped Group B aerial that I am going to try instead. (BBCB on C47 is on the edge of the 5G frequencies and is the one with the problems, so I'm hoping a group B aerial will filter that a bit). Is there something obvious that I have missed? Thanks.
