Ken sims:

There is no known fault at the Croyde transmitter and no one else has made any comments about problems with BBC 1 or BBC 2.

It is more likely that either you have too much signal, or too little signal , on those channels. The signal strength needs to be between 60% and 85%, any more or less will give the symptoms you state. Else you may have problems with the cables and connections.

Please check that your aerial cables and connections are in good order. Unplug each of the plugs in the feed and re-insert them into their sockets - corrosion/oxidation of the contacts can often cause the symptoms described.

Retuning does not help regain lost channels so please don't retune. Please also check that you are tuned to the correct channels. Put your post code into the Digital UK Coverage Checker at Digital UK - Coverage checker and scroll to the listing for the Croyde transmitter. That will tell you the channels being used. It will also tell you what aerial group you need, most people now need a wideband type, and when any future changes are expected.
