All channel 4 programs start to break up and eventually go to no input signal after 9pm, selling channels unfortunately are never affected!!!!

Rachel in Wiveliscombe, near Taunton: I can no longer receive Al-Jazeera English, as it has been moved to channel 108 which is not transmitted from Stockland Hill transmitter. Even though this is reported as having no problems, this is a big problem for me! The only advice I have found is to try and receive it from another transmitter by moving the aerial, but when I click on the list to see which one to try it does not come up. Also I doubt this would work as we are in a very hilly area - I think the next nearest one would be Mendips. Who can I appeal to? I feel very angry as the service before on channel 133 was perfect. Who has decided to change the availability of this station? Would it be resolved by going back to non HD reception? How come BBC channels can be watched on both non-HD and HD channels. It is very frustrating and wrong to discriminate in our choice of TV channels without any consultation. Thankyou.

Rachel Gundry:

If you give a full post code, you and I could look up where you live and hence suggest which transmitter might be worth trying. Mendip is a full service transmitter so tranmits most channels, but some commercial channels choose not to transmit from all the main transmitters and very, very few of the 'light' transmitters - it's a matter of cost/benefit for them.

Wiveliscombe is not a great place for signal reception but a lovely small town and well worth a visit IMHO.

As an aside, it is worth using the pages on this site for your current transmitter, this one is intended to coever issues with reception, etc from the Belmont transmitter in North Lincolnshire, between Louth and Lincoln. It is, therefore, not the ideal page to get information from for your area.

Angela Thompson: the William Hepburn's tropospheric ducting forecast for Europe shows that it is highly likely that reception in Eastern parts of England is currently being influenced by signals from The Netherlands and/or Germany. I noticed yesterday morning on FM radio that there was a radio station playing German music on an adjacent frequency to BBC Radio Derby received here in South Yorkshire. Reception should return to normal when there is a change in weather conditions.
