Mendip (Somerset, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Tuesday 2 April 2013 8:54PM

I am in a dip at BA3 5XU. Roof top arial (But fairly old)
Since 27th March BBC channels from Mendip arial has been a problem.
Humax freeview box. BBCA channels are found on C49 (698.0MHz) but reception is poor and freezes a lot. Signal strength is ~75% but quality is is erratic. Average 50% but varying 40-80%

C54 ITV etc has good reception. Signal strength ~82% and quality 100%

Also appear to have problem with SDN C48 group. (these channels not found in auto search)
Channel strength and quality (manual tune) is same as BBCA.

Have tried removing any old set top boxes with no improvement.

Any ideas please? How can I tell if it's arial related?
