Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Great Yarmouth (Norfolk, England) mast?

I live in Palmer Road Gorleston, why do I keep losing my tv channels on freeview tv.
I am getting fed losing all the ITV, CHANNEL 4 AND 5 channels, even lost the BBC channels as
well the other night. Not only me, but the old people rely on their tv.
Please get it sorted surely with the modern technology we can enjoy tv
without losing the connection. One way of sorting it I will refuse to pay
my TV licence.

Please come back to me on my mobile phone 07902 548797

GARY LOVERIDGE:

It's extremely unwise to post your mobile number or address on a public forum as it may lead to crank calls or scams, a full postcode was all that was needed. No-one will respond to your mobile (this is an independent help site) as they won't wish to disclose their mobile number!

There is unfortunately a lot of "tropospheric ducting" around at present (see https://www.bbc.co.uk/reception/help-guides/freeview/effect-of-tropospheric-ducting-on-freeview for a simplistic explanation). In the old black and white days we used to refer to "continental interference". Interference can come from Europe or UK transmitters and it doesn't always affect the same multiplexes or all of them at the same time and it can come and go.

You are not the only ones to be affected, it's affecting different parts of the country at varying times, but your area even has had a BBC report of reception being affected by "weather conditions". It's also likely to be continuing off and on for several days, although the predictions (like weather forecasts) can change.

Refusing to pay your TV Licence will have no effect on weather conditions or climate change!

Oh, I forgot to say that you shouldn't retune whilst you lose signal as you'll just end up with the correct tuning being lost and having to repeat a retune when signals are more stable.
