Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Winter Hill transmitter area
Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
11:59 AM Morecambe
Hi, I have a static caravan near Morecambe. Aerial is on a pole on the roof and was fitted last year, facing Lancaster. We noticed no Sky News etc so turned the aerial towards Winter Hill and everything was fine. This year all channels have interference so had to buy a signal booster which gave watchable channels (but temperamental depending on wire positions etc) but blocky Dave etc. Turned the aerial back towards Lancaster and done full system resets etc; COM5 are completely missing, occasionally it finds them and adds them to the 800 number channels but the picture is just green blocky lines. All other channels are approx 70 signal strength, 100 quality. The freeviewtuner is a philips tv, and it only does automatic scans. When i scan for channels i get 95 channels on quick scan (no COM5), 120 channels on fullscan (unwatchable COM5).
Any ideas please? I seem to be spending all my break scanning channels.
