Geoff Gaunt: Actually check the signal path. Occam's razor says the the simplest explaination is probably the most likely. It might be the tiles, but its much more likely that you have a leak....

Geoff Gaunt: Mike - definitely no leak/damp in the loft space. No way any moisture can get into the aerial/connectors/cabling which all run internally.

It's the fact that the degraded signal lasted for a couple of days after the heavy rain event before coming good again which may indicate the (old) tiles are absorbing moisture.

PSB1 signal strength is now showing 54% (sunshine on the roof :-), it was 53% yesterday and 48% when signal was lost)

I guess the ultimate solution is to get the aerial outside if it becomes a regular occurrence.

Geoff Gaunt: What was your signal strength when you put the aerial in? The wet tiles might well be having a dampening effect, but the signal strength loss seems to be only about 6% - so perhaps your on the margin anyway, and the wet tiles are pushing the system under the treshold for a decent signal.

Put your postcode into the site - if you should get a fantastic signal according to the predictors, and your not (OK, so loft aerials are as much magic as science), then its not the wet tiles, but something else.

Yes, a roof mounted aerial would be better, but it might be your setup is fine, but its a little under the weather at the moment.
