This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Hebden Bridge (Calderdale, England) transmitter.

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).

Television from Hebden Bridge transmitter keeps breaking up especially on BBC programmes. This only started after the interruption to service in early December caused by local power cuts. We have had a booster fitted to the aerial feed with only marginal effect.

David Colenutt:

We're on the DAB transmitter page rather than the Freeview one, never mind, the only relevant information that's of significance at present is the UHF channels for each multiplex.

In the order PSBs1/BBCA, PSB2/D3&4, PSB3/BBCB HD, the UHF channels are C25, C22, C28
Check in your TV's tuning section that those are the ones you are actually tuned to, retuning after power cuts or other weather events could have got you inadvertently tuned to another transmitter.
More than one transmitter may be receivable in your locale, but as you haven't given a full postcode we can't say if this relay will give you the best reception, or which way your aerial should point, other than that the rods (or squashed Xs) should be vertical.

With some of the weather conditions we've had in recent months it's a good idea to check that your aerial seems intact and pointing in the correct direction with the rods (or squashed Xs) vertical and that your downlead looks undamaged and isn't flapping in the wind.

Also check all you coax plugs, connections, flyleads etc, unplug connectors check for corrosion or other problems and reconnect them. Flyleads can be a common problem, try swapping them.
See what signal strengths and quality you are getting for the multiplexes (groups of channels) shown in your TV's tuning section, this might indicate potential issues with your aerial or downlead.
If you post the figures for each it may give us a clue.

Aerial misalignments, problematic connections, water ingress etc. can seem to affect reception of just AN individual or several multiplexes.

Who installed your booster and where is it located? How old, roughly, is your aerial installation?
Check that you don't have any HDMI leads close to any aerial or flyleads, especially if the aerial and flyleads aren't high quality double screened types. HDMI is known to sometimes cause interference.
If your problem is related to incorrect tuning, or a fault on your aerial system, adding a booster will not be of real help.

Over recent weeks, high pressure weather systems have periodically been accompanied by "Temperature Inversion/Tropospheric Ducting" where signals from distant transmitters in Europe or the UK are carried further than normal, due to the particular layers of the atmosphere. It causes interference to your wanted signals. This can result in changes to received signal strength and quality.
The problems can last for seconds, minutes ,hours, sometimes even longer. Do NOT retune, you are likely to just lose your correct tuning.
If this was the sort of problem you were having , and your reception is currently good, and you are correctly tuned, just post the postcode and strength & quality figures and we might be able to offer further advice.
