Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Belmont transmitter area
According to the Digital UK Coverage Checker you should be getting excellent reception from Belmont transmitter, see http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker/main/trade/LN6+9NA/1/0/NA. You could even get good reception of Emley Moor signals!
So it is worth checking all your aerial connections and cables. If there are any coaxial plugs/sockets then unplug those and refit them. Check that your aerial has not moved in the recent winds and that the cables are undamaged.

John Simon Knight:
The same multiplexes will be broadcast from Belmont after each of the retune events, one as you know on the 23rd, and two more in Q1 2020 dates TBA.
How reception will change (with each) will depend upon your aerial and your postcode. If you are receiving all multiplexes satisfactorily at present, if you have a wideband aerial, then it will be down to your postcode because some of the COM multiplexes (5/6/7/8) are moving and they will be to channels that are used by other transmitters and potential interference from them could affect reception. Whilst that's the case already with the other multiplexes that aren't moving, you already know what reception you are getting with them.
If you provide a full postcode we can advise, or put your postcode into the DigitalUK checker http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker/main/index/dummy/NA/yes to see predicted reception at the various dates.

John Simon Knight:
Meant to add, the change on the 23rd is COM8 moving to UHF56 and becoming an SFN (Single Frequency Network) so you may find the received single is not quite as good as before. COM7 is moving to temporary channel UHF35. At the first retune in Q1 next year COM7 moves to UHF55 and will be a SFN. COM5/ArqA moves to UHF23. In the 2nd retune in Q1 COM6/ArqB moves to UHF26.
