Over the last 3 weeks we have experienced frequent . No signal on all or TVs which are aimed on Crystal Palace.
Postcode GU102NZ

This occurs usually before 08.00 and we also noticed after 01.00. We lost DVB transmission ( Freeview) during election night at 01.10.

It's all fine on TV sets where we have Free - sat also internet derived TV is fine.

When it cuts out it's immediate and complete no break-up as one might see for reduced signal ... the signal is zero and when it returns it's all immediate and fully clear

I have searched web for details but there seems to next to nothing as it concerns Crystal Palace transmission

Thanks for those responses received.

Some quick comments - we do not have Economy 7 or similar in our home and our neighbours are not very close to us.
There are a large number of electrical devices in our home that are permanently on or come in on demand - like central heating pumps etc.

Yes we are probably on the edge of Crystal Palace transmissions , but we have been so for over 20 years ( not using the same Ariel I hasten to add) . I am not sure if the type of Ariel we have - I will check this - it was installed about 7-8 years ago. There are a number of high trees near us but most are no longer in leaf.

There are 6 Panasonic TVs here and all exhibit the same issue when it occurs.I am not sure when the outages initiate suffice to say in the middle of the night. In all cases we observe service restored just before 08.00. We have never observed outages during 08.00 to approx 01.00.

As previously mentioned the cut or subsequent restoration is immediate - there is no prior deterioration in signal - it's ether on or off.

I will have a chat with my antenna installation guy who is pretty competent, and familiar with local conditions
