I live in Bridekirk near Cockermouth. My aerial is pointed towards the Caldbeck transmitter.

At present, BBC News HD on channel 107 breaks up a lot and gives frequent 'no signal' messages.

When will channel 107 be broadcast in full power from Caldbeck on C30 like channels 101 - 105, or must I either continue to obtain it only on channel 130 in lower definition or use my Humax Freesat HD box which gets an excellent signal?

I appear to have no COM7 HD CH32 signal from the Caldbeck transmitter, which is the normal way for me to receive BBC4 HD (channel 106) and BBC News HD (channel 107). I can get a good BBC B HD CH 30 signal, so `I can receive channels 101, 102, 103, 104 and 105.
Is there some particular problem with the COM7 HD signal from Caldbeck at the moment? It seems to have been off air from at least 20:00 on 4 April and is still off air at 22:40 on 4 April 2018. Can anyone help?
