One has carried out the recommended procedures but the service is now only a fraction of what it was and the quality is extremely poor.

Of course one wants to know why.

The screen prompt was to retune; why, when ruddy awful service is the net result?

Re: Alan Coldham
You are most potbelly only getting a week signal from Heathfield or Crystal Palace.
From the 30 of May the Heathfield power will increase and the Haywards Heath transmitter will start.
You won't get a signal from Midhurst
as the hill in Franklands Village will block your signal.
Is your aerial pointing to Sussex Square roundabout, north to London or east to Heathfield.

Re: MCMLXII

According to the web page at;
http://www.digitaluk.co.u….pdf

BBC Two analogue ends at midnight and BBCA/PSB1 will start by 6:00am for Haywards Heath and Heathfield. But times can change on the day, if they have problems. (RH163LB)
