Oxford (Oxfordshire, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Wednesday 14 March 2018 1:48PM

Having real problems with weak signals or no signals at all on COM 7 and COM 8. Never had a problem before until this last week. In post code OX39. Has something changed? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Thank you Mike for the response. I must admit my outside aerial was fitted about 10 years ago but installed by a professional installer. I have had no problems whatsoever with reception since then until the past two weeks. COM 7 & COM 8 show 0% signal strength, where it was 85%-100% always before. All other multiplexs seem fine.

The TV is no more than 1 metre from the aerial wall socket in the lounge. I tried putting a signal booster between the TV and the wall socket and valour I am back to full strength on both COM 7 and COM 8. I don't think we have had any strong winds and the outside aerial seems very secure and not have moved. So i can only conclude that transmitted signal strength has been reduced? Is that a fair conclusion.
