This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Okehampton (Devon, 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).

Hi we have continual problems with the ITV channels on our digital aerial and have to retune frequently BBC is fine but ITV breaks down or cannot be seen - HD channels work fine should we just go for Freeview Sat dish?

Steve S:

Unfortunately, a partial post code is not at all helpful as it does not bring up the transmitter or reception data dfor your location, so please provide a full post code.

It is quite possible that you have a poor connection in your aerial system somewhere. That can be frequency selective and affect just one of just a few of the multiplexes, leaving others working fine. So please carefully check all the connections, concentrating on getting a good clean connectionall the way from the TV to the aerial. You may need to gently tighten the pcoaxial plugs and sockets and to pull the aerial plugs out and put them back in several times to ensure there is a good, clean and tight connection.

Then check that you are correctly tuned to you best transmitter - but do not do a retune. Check the channels being received and the signal strengths for each. That should ideally be between 50% and 85% for the SD channels and between 60% and 85% for the HD ones. Any higher or lower will cause the sort of problems you are experiencing.

Please report back here goving the details of location, channels and strengths.

There is "Planned Engineering" listed this week for the Okehampton Relay with "Possible service interruptions"
It's likely that was the cause of your loss, and they have now hopefully returned.
