Hi since the 5th April I have experienced blocking and poor reception on most channels. I have retuned my Panasonic TV (approx 2 years old) with no improvement. The signal strength as per the set up menu ranges from 1 very poor on bbc1, ITV etc to 10 on pop (frequency 754 MHz (ch56).
I don't understand technical jargen so if you explain simply it would've appreciated
Thanks
David i

David Ison - a postcode would be useful and you say ch.56 is fine but you don't say on which channels your BBC and ITV are registered. I suspect you are receiving BBC and ITV from Bilsdale and not Emley Moor. Ch 56 is unique to the Yorkshire area at present so that is why it stands out. When you re-scan your channels, start it with the aerial disconnected until ch.30 is reached and you should avoid the Bilsdale channels for ITV and BBC. You could also reset everything on your TV then manually select the channels for scanning. If it's an HD capable TV then start with channels 32 and 41,then the channels that all TV's can receive, 44, 47,48,51,52 and lastly 56.

MUX COM4/SDN Emley Moor, S18 8PR. Outside aerial above roof.
Retuned on 13 May after reception problems on Drama(20). All stations were then very good, but as of Thursday 14 May all programmes on UHF51 had gone zero signal strength.
Done this: First disconnect the aerial lead from the Freeview box or TV set and reconnect it and then follow this reset procedure to scan for channels again. NO UHF51.Tried the above again, but leaving aerial out until UHF30 reached, then plugged in aerial. NO UHF51.Can it be that my present aerial, which has worked fine up until last Thursday, can suddenly be no good?
Thank you.

The alphabetical listing page Every TV and radio mast has a lot of broken links, affecting links to TV and DAB transmitter maps with multi-word names. e.g. Emily Moor TV link is listed as Full service Freeview transmitters whereas the working URL is Full service Freeview transmitters So instead of going to the correct transmitter map page, it ends up at the Full service Freeview transmitters landing page (or Map of all DAB transmitters for DAB).
Not just Emily Moor, but all of the multi-word name transmitters, including Crystal Palace and Pontop Pike (just to pick a few main transmitters.
