James Stewart: Hi, James. There are no faults at or engineering work on the Glengorm transmitter today, the last engineering works at Glengorm having taken place roughly one month ago on 16th. May. Maybe you and your neighbour need to carry out re-tunes in order to restore your channels from Glengorm. I would, however, check all of your aerial leads and plugs first, to ensure that there are no loose connections or 'shorts' before carrying out a retune, and I would also ask you to advise your neighbour to do likewise. Hope this advice helps, Richard, Norwich, Weds. 15th. June, 2:50 p.m.
