Hi Chris,

My apologies for taking so long to reply .. life with young kids keeps one very busy!!
I have noticed that the reception with my newer aerial is very much weather-dependent. The better the weather the better the reception. Tonight the weather is not great (a lot of rain) .. and for the first time, I'm seeing even BBC1 showing some pixellation and signal strength only 50 - 60% (instead of 72%).

I'll probably need to contact my local TV aerial person back to have another look. I now wish I kept the older (ch21 - 68) aerial, which never exhibited this problem...

Thanks for all the info on nearby transmitters!

Thanks, Chris. Hmm, I wonder if it is rain leaking in somewhere then! I'll have to check with my aerial guy. This evening after all the rain earlier, I am only getting the BBC mux, and SaorView. I'm not even getting Channel 4 or UTV (ITV)! (BBC is at 60%). I know that some coax cable had been changed from the mast head amplifier to the aerial, so that could be the culprit. My wife also told me that all channels break up when I use the paper shredder but I can't blame the rain on that one :-)

I'll let you know what comes out of it all when I get a hold of the aerial man.
