I had reasonable digital service with a wideband aerial aligned to Crystal Palace. This gave over 130 channels though some were not good. After Digital cutover I retuned and got about 40 but only 3 or 4 were watchable - the rest broke up with No Signal. We have trees all around us so I bought the best high gain aerial and installed it on the existing 4M pole using a decent signal meter. But the signal was terrible! I was advised by one of the Digital Cutover support personnel that the power from Crystal Palace had been reduced and to try Hemel Hempstead so adjusted the polarisation to vertical. No signal. So I have now reverted to Crystal Palace and hope a 6M pole will help. But am I wasting my time waiting for them to turn the power up again? Have they changed the position/alignment of the aerials at Crystal Palace?
