Paul:

Depending on your exact postcode, you could possibly pick up 3 other main transmitters in addition to Emley Moor. Check each of your multiplexes is correctly tuned to Emley Moor's UHF channels as listed in the post before yours.

If you are correctly tuned, you mentioned an 18 element aerial, if this is an older Group B aerial as originally used by Emley Moor, then the SDN multiplex may not be received as strongly, likewise the ArqA multiplex, you may need a Group T (or Wideband) for optimal reception, especially for COMs 7&8.

If you have all these things then, as I can find no reported faults by the BBC or Freeview 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. 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.

Also check you have no HDMI leads near poorly screened flyleads/aerial leads as these can cause interference.

It did that back in February, see 26 Feb 2020 - Channel changes | Freeview
I'm afraid there are quite a few listings on this site that are not up-to-date as the site owner had not had time to keep up with all the 700MHz Clearance changes, never mind broadcasters swapping their channels about!

Malcolm:

Smithsonian is on the ArqA multiplex, see Channel listings | Freeview
Check you are tuned to the correct UHF channel C36 at Emley for this multiplex.
I assume since the last of the 700MHz Clearance retunes on the 5th Feb., you have a Group T or Wideband aerial.
I can't find any faults currently listed (it's not "our" engineers btw, this is an independent help site) other than that there is some "Tropospheric Ducting" around at present which may result in interference in some parts of the country, see -

Cheers Chris S.E.

Yes I was a bit behind there as COM7 and COM8 have gone today now anyway :-D

I'll miss Now 80s, even though it broke up all the time, presumably due to mobile interference from Sheffield.

For anyone else interested the changes not reflected in the table as of now, these are COM4/SDN moved to Ch33 and COM5/ArqA moved to Ch36 (Feb 20).

Looking forward to the extra channels in the future when DVB-T phased out, shame it takes so long.

Dave S:

My post Wednesday, 22 April 2020 on p219 lists all the current UHF channels for Emley, except of course COM8 is closing. COM7 is still there with Now 80s on C55. If you are not picking it up, try a manual tune on C55, there's some variable "tropo" around which my cause periodic interference!

Just in case anyone misses it - a reminder that since the 700MHz clearance retune, and Arqiva's decision to close COM8 for commercial reasons -
Emley's Multiplexes & UHF channels are now as follows, in the order -
PSBs1/BBCA, PSB2/D3&4, PSB3/BBCB HD, COM4/SDN, COM5/ArqA, COM6/ArqB, COM7 HD, & Local
C47, C44, C41, C33, C36, C48, C55, & C39.

Whether you get satisfactory reception of COM7 or the Local multiplexes will depend on location.
