Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Black Hill transmitter area
FK8 1UH, aerial on roof, no problems at all until the last fortnight or so when channels went missing (especially BBC ones), signal broke up, or recieved "No signal" message. Several neighbours have same experience. Have done several full retunes, unplugged everything, checked aerial connections (as have neighbours).

Anne Gordon: According to the post above yours there is engineering work taking place today at the Callander transmitter. Resetting/retuning whilst you have no signal is the worst thing to do, just wait and your channels will return when the work is finished.
