Dave Freeman:

This is not the website to use to contact Arqiva about transmitter problems.

The 'digitaluk trade' entry below your post suggests that Faversham is likely to give variable reception at your location, but Bluebell Hill could be better.

There is a posting under yours from Transmitter Engineering (drawn from the BBC Engineering website) that shows there is work on problems at Faversham.
