Kilvey Hill (Swansea, Wales) Full Freeview transmitter
Monday 7 January 2019 11:26AM

Hi there,
In the last few months I have lost Drama & Quest channels from the Kilvey Hill transmitter.
I see on your above table that this is the COM4/SDN MUX and that changes were made on the 17th Oct. 2018. (I seem to have also lost the other channels you list on this MUX)
Does this mean I should buy a Wideband aerial to restore these channels.
My postcode is SA67 8NT and my Group A aerial is mounted on roof.
Kind Regards,
Graham Richards

Thanks for the info. I have now tried manual tuning but still no good. I will have to see if there is a problem on the roof and if not invest in a new aerial. Drama & Quest channels were always a bit 'iffy' especially in the summer.

Thanks for the info Mike. Yes I know Prescelli is quite close to me but unfortunately nobody in my locality is pointing that way. When I first moved here in the mid 70's I remember trying for the Prescelli transmitter without succss.
I will look on the roof for obvious cable problems with the wiring to the booster boxes etc but if nothing is obvious I will have to invest in a new aerial. The signal from Kilvey is generally good enough for most of the channels but marginal on Quest & Drama.
