Hi. For me to help you, just think of your problem and answer each question in turn. First, are you seeing the words "No Signal" or "Technical fault" on the TV screen?

The Winter Hill transmitter frequencies listed on this site are all wrong.
They should be
Ch31 (554MHz) = Com8 (HD)
Ch37 (602MHz) = Arq B
Ch49 (698MHz) = Arq A
Ch50 (706MHz) = BBC A
Ch54 (738MHz) = BBC B (HD)
Ch55 (746MHz) = Com7 (HD)
Ch58 (770MHz) = SDN
Ch59 (778MHz) = D3&4

Changing on 20th Feb & 22nd Apr 2020
Thanks

Yes, regular posters here know that, and have frequently advised on many pages that the site owner has been unable to keep up with all the changes. We refer them to the official Freeview pages.

Hi, I have just moved into 4a winterstoke road, Weston-super-Mare BS23 3YT and none of the tv Ariel sockets work, so it looks like I will need to put in a new ariel. Can you please advise me of the best transmitter for this area (for freeview) and the type of ariel needed.

Many thanks

Bob Medway

Ideally you should use the full service transmitter at Mendip. An alternative is the Freeview Light transmitter at Hutton. That has a restricted range of channels but might give better reception.

As MikeP says you should get very good reception from Mendip. But also note signals from Wenvoe (Wales) are very strong and depending on your TV's tuning section, you may need to manually tune rather than automatically if you TV does not ask which region (West) you want to watch.

At this time neither Freeview nor the BBC are reporting any issues with the ROMALDKIRK transmitter, and there aren't others posting on that transmitter page with problems. As you will not doubt be aware there is some severe weather at present. Are there any power outages in your area?

Other than that, check all you coax plugs, connections, flyleads etc, unplug connectors check for corrosion or other problems and reconnect them. Flyleads can be a common proble, try swapping them. See what signal strengths (if any) and quality you are getting for the multiplexes shown in your TV's tuning section, this might indicate potential issues with your aerial or downlead. Also check that your downlead looks undamaged and that your aerial seems intact and pointing in the correct direction.
Problematic connections, water ingress etc. can seem to affect reception of just an individual or several multiplexes.
