Anybody else having problems with C52 from Claremont carn tonight??? Dunno if it's weather related.

My sets are showing very poor signal tonight so maybe my masthead amp has died. Nothing else changed but has been a while since I tried it. I was seeing some errors a couple of weeks ago due to reduced quality but now I have black screens. :-(

Been up in the attic and checked I still have power into my saorview aerial amp. Swapped the amp for another with a little more gain but still I get black screen. Odd as the mast hasn't moved and chances of cable damage are negligible as nothing has changed in months.

PaulN: I've Googled various terms and not been successful in finding information on RT?? transmitter engineering works.

www.rtenl.ie which is the network operator does not appear to give that information.

So this is weird. Today I am getting 100% quality from Claremont carn. Nothing has been changed. So it must have been weather related when it went bad last time - unless something else was interfering on C52. Weird, but hopefully it stays good for the Pro12 final in HD on RTE2 !

Hi all!

I see that I am receiving Test Transmissions from Claremont Carn multiplex SV2 on UHF 56. Does anyone have any information regarding broadcasters and when full service will commence?

Regards

Kieran
