Arqiva statement on Hannington transmitter group
Sunday 26 February 2012 10:16PM

N Smith - we have lost the same mux in Reading (we're clear of the 'notch' area and have had generally good Freeview reception from Hannington all along). After switchover the ArqB mux on Ch47 has all but disappeared (we picked it up at the retune on all 4 of our various receivers but have hardly seen it since, so have had to do a manual retune to Crystal Palace on Ch29 for now).
Fingers crossed that the power increase in April will bring ArqB back for us - the DUK predictor shows 79/90 now and 98/99 from 4 April, so I'm cautiously optimistic. (SU710741)

We're in Reading and have dual Crystal Palace & Hannington antennas, with CP generally giving the better signal. Looks like the new multiplex for the Reading area on channel 29 for That's TV is only serving to obliterate London Live, which we used to receive reliably until recently, so we're experiencing the same as Davews is in Bracknell, with a signal strength of 7/10 and quality of 0 now indicated on our Panasonic TV. So from our point of view the channel looks like a poor choice too.
