PSB Channels have been disrupted (and are at this moment 31st October1558 - down since 1555) several times in the last 24 Hours, with long periods of no signal at all. This is not a specific to one property, but experienced also by my neighbours. We do NOT share aerial installations

This evening (13-2-2019) we have had major disruption of the main TV Channels, making them unwatchable for almost all the time. This occurs a number of times each year, although some channels never seem to be affected (Channel 37 "Quest" for example.

We have a brand new roof arial, with internal signal booster, and yet both before and after the replacement arial, this keep occurring. The arial installer about the alternative, Talconston, which is equidistant from Sandy Heath, advised us NOT to change , as it was no more reliable.

We are aware that in high pressure weather systems, signal strength at the extremes of range are reduced - but to lose signal altogether on ONLY SOME (The Main) channels is unacceptable and inexplicable
