12:20 PM Morecambe
Since the 'beast from the east' very high winds blew through Morecambe recently, our digital signal is still 100%. Our problem is with the 5 or 6 HD channels, the signal is down to 75% and every time a train (we live in South Road) goes past the reception drops out and the returns after the train has gone. Is work or repairs being done on the Lancaster transmitter? Our Postcode is LA4 6JP our aerial is on the roof.
