Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Caradon Hill transmitter area
The BBC reported a fault a few days ago - From 5:12:14pm to 6:57:56pm on 18th Feb 2022 Off the air due to a fault (most likely due to a power cut affecting that area), but there doesn't appear to be any currently reported fault.
If you happened to retune when you had no signal (not advised) this will most likely have just cleared your correct tuning and you'd have to repeat a retune when signals are normal.
Are your neighbours having the same problem?
Otherwise, check that your aerial seems intact and pointing in the correct direction with the rods (or squashed Xs) vertical (for Kingsbridge) and that your downlead looks undamaged and isn't flapping in the wind.
