Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Rosneath transmitter area
Andrea green: Although I suspected that you might be using the Garelochhead transmitter (@ 0.5 miles away) I also thought it prudent to check your location relative to that of the transmitter due to the nature of the terrain around that area, hence for my request for the P/code involved.
However, as far as your problems are concerned, nothing as yet was seen reported as far as any fault conditions being in existence, nor are there any indications of work being carried out at the transmitter, which by the way is located between a gap in the trees on the right hand side (going uphill) of the Whistlefield Road behind the Feorlin Way estate.
I do of course realise you have said that your neighbours are also experiencing problems and which I assume have their own separate aerial? therefore if at all possible, I would suggest that you try to make a few enquiries further along the roadway on your right heading towards the main part of the town for purposes of finding out if any problems exist in that area, as its possible that the aforementioned trees are partially obstructing the signal path to the Faslane side of the Loch.
Should anything be reported I will make another posting to this effect.

Jack Williams: The most obvious question is: is it tuned to the transmitter to which the aerial faces?
Are you tuned to Rosneath rather than Garelochhead? Bring up the signal strength screen on BBC One and observe the UHF channel tuned. Rosneath is on C49 and Garelochhead is on C42. Do the same for STV: Rosneath is on C58 and Garelochhead is on C45.
