Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Emley Moor transmitter area
Where we live, Northowram HX3 7WF we have excellent line-of-sight reception from Emley Moor with a strong, high-quality signal on most multiplexes.
The exception is Channel 36 where reception is iffy and programmes unwatchable. Why is this? Is it something to do with the temporary mast? Is it a directional phenomenon?

Dr SM Crawford:
Whilst Malcolm's problem may well have been due to a transmitter fault which wasn't identified/reported at that time, there was subsequent Planned Engineering at Emley w/c 8/6/20. As you say you should have excellent line of sight reception.
The problem you now see could well be a repeat of the same issue, which might be the reason that there has been major work at Emley since 4/12/20 see https://www.freeview.co.uk/help/service-updates/maintenance-work-transmitters
The "temporary" mast was put up in 2017 with the intention of it being in place for 4 years whilst structural work was done at the top of the existing mast. However covid-19 has put pay to the work that was originally planned in 2020, so whether the current work is due to or causing the problem you currently see, we don't know, Arqiva don't normally provide that sort of detail.

There has been some recent major work at Emley (which was previously unlisted) see https://www.freeview.co.uk/help/service-updates/maintenance-work-transmitters which supposedly has finished but it wouldn't surprise me if work is carrying on if/when weather permits etc. This may be giving rise to the problem you are seeing. There may be some other cause!
Make sure you are tuned to all the correct UHF channels for Emley, it's possible that during the work if there was no or weak signal you may have got tuned to another transmitter -
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 multiplex will depend on location.
If the problem continues, post back, further information may have come to light.

I can't find any reports of problems affecting ArqB/COM6 and the transmitter isn't currently listed for Planned Engineering.
Is the problem still present? Are you receiving COM7 C55 ok?
It might be worth checking that your aerial seems intact and pointing in the correct direction (at your location bearing 124 degrees - that's 11 degrees E of SE with rods horizontal) and that your downlead looks undamaged (especially if it is old).
Also 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 (groups of channels) shown in your TV's tuning section.
Problematic connections, water ingress etc. can seem to affect reception of just AN individual or several multiplexes.
