So, I'm in Middlesbrough. The Eston Nab transmitter is up and down like a yo-yo! As for the replacement Bilsdale transmitter, the signal from it is too poor to watch - on a good day I can get more channels from the Nottingham transmitter! Talking to my neighbours, a few have switched to the Eston Nab transmitter, but the majority have abandoned terrestrial TV. If someone were to survey the number of homes without terrestrial TV reception in the area, my gut feeling it is many times that 16,000 quoted number!

Keith john Alger:
See this previous post, and follow the links https://ukfree.tv/extras/inreplyto/1027219
I suggest you contact Arqiva.
Whilst predictions aren't always accurate, current predictions suggest you should get good reception from Bilsdale Quarry, quite good reception from Eston Nab except COM6 (C48) which could be poor/variable, and reasonable reception from Pontop PIke although the COM muxes are likely to be variable.
There has been some "temperature inversion/tropospheric ducting" around on various occasions of late which could have resulted in interference to your reception or indeed provided the conditions to allow you to get the Nottingham transmitter (which you certainly aren't predicted to get in normal circumstances!).
