Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Chatton transmitter area
Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
Unfortunately not, it's carried on the temporary COM7 HD multiplex which is only transmitted on some of the main transmitters. Whether or not you can reliably get reception from another transmitter that carries it will depend upon your postcode (a full postcode is needed to check).

We have recently lost all of our channels with a no signal warning. This happened around 48 hours ago and they briefly returned yesterday afternoon before disappearing again around 5pm. We still have no signal.
We receive our signal from Chatton and notice in the Freeview engineering schedule that work is planned on the Berwick relay this week with possible service interruption.
Our aerial system is all new from the 3rd January and has worked perfectly since installation. It worked well yesterday when the signal returned and all wiring, connections and aerial look good.
Is it possible to find out if this outage is a result of the planned engineering works and if so how long this might go on for....come on guys it's the rugby this weekend....

This is an independent help site. We aren't responsible for the broadcasters or transmitter operators.
It is unusual for signals to disappear for the lengths of time you have mentioned, so it's possible that your aerial system may have a fault or any internal connections (flyleads etc) may be faulty, or your aerial is not pointed at the transmitter you think.
The Berwick transmitter is a Relay that does not broadcast the COMs 4-6 (or7/8) multiplexes, the Chatton transmitter is it's parent which broadcast all 6 main multiplexes. For the channels on each multiplex see https://www.freeview.co.uk/corporate/platform-management/channel-listings so you can check whether you are receiving what you should be.
The BBC are not listing any loss of their services from either Chatton or Berwick.
For Chatton the aerial rods should be horizontal, for the Berwick relay they should be vertical.
I'd suggest you check all your coax plugs, connections, flyleads etc, unplug connectors check for corrosion or other problems and reconnect them. Flyleads are a common problem, try swapping/changing them. See what signal strengths and quality you are getting for the multiplexes shown in your TV's tuning section. Also check that your downlead looks undamaged (especially if it is old) and that your aerial seems intact and pointing in the correct direction.
Problematic connections, water ingress etc. can seem to affect reception of just an individual or several multiplexes.
If you still have problems after those checks, I suggest you contact Freeview https://www.freeview.co.uk/ phone 0808-100-0288
If you require further help here, a full postcode will be needed to check Freeview's predicted reception at your location.
