Ann James:

If you were previously correctly tuned you should never retune if you have no signal or badly pixellated pictures as this usually just clears your correct tuning. You then have to retune again when signals are normal and as you won't know when that is, you may have to try several times!

It doesn't matter whether the signal problem is due to transmitter maintenance, faults or weather conditions. It's very rare that such problems persist for lengthy periods. If you are without signal for any lengthy period, often a good idea to check with a near neighbour if they have the same problem, if not it could be a fault on your system.

I can't find any reported faults for the Fishguard transmitter but as it is a relay of Preseli and whilst it's not listed for Planned Engineering, Preseli was listed this week, it's possible there may have been service interruptions.

You are only 2km from the transmitter and shouldn't normally have any reception problems. If you still have a problem and your neighbours are receiving signal ok, then post back with a bit of detail about your aerial installation etc.
Do of course check you aerial looks intact, that your downlead isn't flapping around in the wind etc. and all your coax plugs are inserted correctly.
