Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Geddington (Northamptonshire, England) mast?

No problems on any service. BBC

UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

we seem to have a problem with the TV signal for the last few days. It i almost impossible to have it on, as it keeps freezing and disappearing altogether. We have two different aerials on our house, and the problem is on every TV, no matter which aerial is the TV connected to, therefore I was wondering if there is an overall problem somewhere?

Kind Regards,

Ruth Wilkinson:

Ah, I can see why you've posted on a Geddington page but there's no Freeview transmitter there it's just DAB & FM. This is the DAB page, not to worry.

Now according to the predictors for your postcode you might be normally receiving signals from one of two main transmitters. Either Sandy Heath (Anglia news region) or Waltham (Central news region).
Which do you normally get?

Which way (compass bearing) is you aerial pointing?
For Sandy Heath it should be ~SE (bearing 136 degrees).
For Waltham it should be slightly N of NNW (bearing 348 degrees).
In both cases the rods (or squashed Xs) would be horizontal.

Both those main transmitters have been/are listed for Planned Engineering so there may be interruptions to signals (normally short term and not all TV channels) or reduced power - so if you have a weak signal it could look like No signal - have you seen such a message pop-up on screen?
If you did, or had badly pixellated pictures, I hope you didn't try a retune then as that will usually just clear the correct tuning.

If you check your aerial is still pointing correctly, check your coax downlead isn't flapping in the wind & your coax plugs are plugged in correctly with no corrosion and no water in the connectors.
Tell us which way your aerial is pointing and the region your normally get, we can advise on checking your tuning and retuning.
