Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Black Hill transmitter area
Do you still have a problem with No Signal?
There's a few STV Central transmitters affected by Planned Engineering although Glasgow West Central Relay wasn't listed as one of them. Black Hill, the main transmitter for the area is listed with "Possible Service Interruptions". I would have expected signals to have returned by now. Other than that, I can't find any listings of reported faults.

Miss Jan Bray Wilson :
It's possible that the transmitter you are getting your signals from is having some either Planned or Essential Engineering due to a fault. Whilst you may be in Glasgow City, which transmitter(s) you may be able to receive or are receiving will depend very much on location. We'd need a full postcode to check what is predicted.
In any event. it's quite likely that your signals may be back to normal by the time you read this.
