Hi there, we have experienced picture break up, freezing and 'poor or no signal' messages from time to time. I am not sure if this is because of 4g at88 or problems with the transmitter, we have not been notified of the presence of a 4G mast.. We receive our signal from the Kilvey Hill transmitter - at SA18NH (Swansea). Our aerial is fairly new (4 years) and is high gain type with a booster. Any ideas please?

Michael: Hi Michael, Yes to both. We are located in a small hollow and therefore signal not very strong.

MikeB: We tried putting the Aerial in the attic at first - terrible signal. The installer did some tests and concluded that Hi gain with booster is necessary for our location. Will search site as you suggest.

MikeB: Did as you suggested - trailing aerial lead results in No Signal.

Mike B: Without booster - no signal! With booster signal strength is: Quality 100% - (ITV1): Strength: bar reading shows approx 75%. I need to make correction on type of Aerial - it is not high gain - just normal single bar with 4/5 pair antenna.

Dave Lindsay: Thanks for the info Dave. My neighbour has an indoor aerial and an excellent reception, so it seem that my location is the main problem. Will look to increase height of mast and check direction(angle). The amplifier is in-house not mast head and when testing, I completely removed it form the system. However will post result of implementing your suggestions.

Jack Luxon: Actually there are quite a few aerials around - as a new development street view has not kept up to speed with installations. As previously stated I think the problem is location - my house is just out of sight of the transmitter so will try a higher mast for my aerial. As an aside, we do have Freesat as well as Freeview and of course the former is 100% on all criteria.
As the interference occurs erratically, it could be months in between good reception I will make enquiries with 3G and 02, who have masts nearby if they are using or testing for 4G.
