Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Sutton Coldfield transmitter area
Alan : Although I fully appreciate that this might well be the case, but though in practically all cases where a time factor is associated with interference, the reason for is usually traced to a fault having developed in a piece of household electrical equipment such as the devices mentioned in the examples. The point being that the defective equipment need not necessarily be located within your own household, as interference can be of a radiated nature and picked up in your aerial system, or alternatively by it passing through the mains wiring, the test mentioned of using an AM radio being a highly effective way of detecting the latter.
If interference is entering your household via the mains wiring, sitting an AM radio near to the incoming supply or even next to a power socket, will usually detect its presence.
Its also prudent (where possible) to make an enquiry with a neighbour to ascertain if they are also experiencing the problem or not just in case its widespread, although I have known cases where an enquiry resulted in the problem magically vanishing, it eventually being found out to have been caused by badly worn out brushes in a washing machines motor, motorised devices of the type that use an copper armature being prone to causing interference as soon as the brushes get worn.

When the transmitter changes its functions or intended uses like the addition of 4g mobile coms and alike do local residents get notification?
I'm about to buy a house nearby but have been told that different frequencies can cause illness.
Can any comments or reports be sent to give me some confidence that there is no risk ??

I have worked in the TV industry since 1960. The concept of RF signals causing illness has been mooted for many years and has no validity unless you are a TV transmitter engineer working on a 'live' transmitting aerial. You can stand directly underneath the transmitting aerials at Crystal Palace, in London, and be perfectly safe.
The general population has been 'bathed' in RF radiation for as long as man has been on the Earth and the natural radiations were present long before then. Man-made RF signals have been around for more than 100 years and almost no one has suffered (there are a few who claim to suffer but no scientific evidence has been found yet).
TV transmitters will not be used for 4G transmissions, they are designed differently. A separate transmitter has to be built for 4G and almost always it uses a separate mast for the aerials.
When 3G started, Ofcom authorised an organisation called 'at800' to inform people who might be affected and to provide those who definitely were with filters. It has nothing to do with any health issues purported by the 'doom sayers' to exist. With 4G that does not seem to exist as the 4G signals will largely use the existing frequencies that have been used for some TV transmissions but these are being moved to other frequencies to all safe operation of 4G.
Stop worrying about nothing and concentrate on whether the house is suitable for you and your family.
