Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Dover transmitter area
Myself and my neighbours are experiencing most channels having really bad pixilation and break up of picture. bbc1,2,itv and 4 seem ok and only occasionally a little pixelation at times. I gather our transmitter is Chartham. We have had problems for some weeks. Fearing I might sound a bit of a lune, i wondered, would by any chance the Cathedral with its huge amount of scaffolding be responsible for our television reception problems? As it is the highest building in Canterbury i thought perhaps it may have something to do with it. Its pretty frustrating as we can only get to watch a couple of channels. Can you help? not sure where else to get help. I have retuned our tv several times.

It is unlikely to be anything connected with Canterbury Cathedral scaffolding, it is not between you and the transmitter at Chartham. The Cathedral is South East of you and the transmitter is West South West of you. It is more likely to be aerial cable problems. Check that all the cables are properly inserted into the sockets, by unplugging them and then re-inserting, and check the cables are undamaged.
