Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Winter Hill transmitter area
Transmitter engineering: tv shown no signal on and off over last few days with intermittent hd coverage. re tuned several times and seems to be up and running again. had a power cut yesterday from 20.00 for approx 2 hours but i think this was coincidental. interesting.

I live in the Broadbottom area, and have a problem with signal quality. It doesn't happen until at least late afternoon, and then sometimes at hourly intervals into the evening. When it does the sound is horrendous, and the picture completely breaks up for about 10 minutes. The signal strength when this occurs is usually 90% min, and the quality fluctuates between 64 - 71%. I have got a top quality aerial, and have moved the freeview box into a position slightly away from the TV that kind of helped. What baffles me is why this only happens at certain times, and why it doesn't occur until late in the day.
I would be grateful for any help or advice you can offer that might solve this frustrating problem.
