Glossop (Derbyshire, England) Freeview Light transmitter
Wednesday 23 March 2022 6:25PM

PR8 5ES. My transmitter is Winter Hill. Since the storms a few months ago, all the COM4 multiplex channels keep dropping out during the day with weak or no signal, sometimes, but not always, returning in the evening. No other stations are affected. Initially I though it might be the weather, or the planned engineering shown for the Skelmersdale relay, but the latter appears to have finished and the weather doesn't hamper any other MUX. My aerial hasn't been shifted by the storm and is pointing in the same direction as everybody else's. I use a signal booster. I tried using two in relay, but there was no apparent improvement, so I'm back to one. This is only a recent problem. I've had it before with Wales stations which come and go according to weather, but this COM4 one has me baffled. Any suggestions?
