Since the retune of Kendal Fell on 23 August I have been unable to receive a signal. I wondered if the coverage or power had changed with the new channels. The multiplexes 39/42/45 from the main Kendal relay are just visible with considerable breaking up, I am theoretically in their area, but the railway embankment and trees block the signals from that direction and I never had good reception from that transmitter.
Although the signal was never very strong, Kendal Fell worked perfectly until 23 August. Now there is no signal I can detect to lock on to on 40/43/46 even if tuning manually. It does suggest there is a signal there but it can not resolve it. It is the same on 5 TV sets.
Using 10 el Yagi >> 20dB Preamp and 8 way distribution amplifier.
