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.

Andrea green: Yes, Michael is quite correct! as I have just spotted it as starting on the week commencing 25th albeit this fact not being mentioned on either the BBC's website nor the R/T investigation dept.
