Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Angus transmitter area
I have gone through the Freeview reset procedure and have no Freeview signal. The signal has been intermittent over the last two weeks. From the 21st of June there has been no signal at all. My neighbour has the same problem.
I do not see a box in the top right for my postcode. It is KY14 7AP and I have a roof aerial.

You are just 3 km from the transmitter, so you may have too much signal, see 'Too much of a good thing' on this website.
Check what the reported signal strength is on all the channels being transmitted from Auchtermuchty, these are currently on channels 39, 42 and 45. (That will change in late 2019 and may mean a change of aerial being needed.) The ideal strength is between 60% and 85% - no more and no less. If you have more then your tuner is being 'swamped' with too much signal that it cannot resolve. The solution is to fit an attenuator (available from many retailers including Amazon.co.uk) and add a short extra flylead so the weight of the attenuator does not 'hang' on the coaxial sockets.
