Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Bluebell Hill transmitter area
My postcode is ME13 9UL I Have just retuned my TV due to loss of signal (it has been like this since last night). On completion the regional option did not include Kent. There is obviously a problem. i changed to London but that signal has now been lost. Please advise

Hi since last night about 7.45 I lost digital signal on all of my TV's. Some channels have returned this morning but when re-scanning the TV's I now have fewer channels. I have now lost Drama, BBC1, and the Horror channel. Can someone tell me why this has happened before I arrange for an aerial installer to come and check my aerial.

Barry Goodsell, Peter Harvey & J.Thompson: The problems you are seeing are very likely cause by the high atmospheric pressure affecting various parts of the country, causing lift conditions which allow signals from distant transmitters which cannot normally be received to interfere with the signals from the transmitter you normally use. Retuning was a bad idea as you have now deleted all of your channels which were correctly tuned. As this is an entirely natural phenomenon, all you can do is wait for the atmospheric conditions to return to normal.
