Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Darvel transmitter area
Have been receiving signal from Blackhill for years. Suddenly morning 4 July signal has become unwatchable on all channels. Signal strength normally ran about 80/90 with only occasional 1/2 bit errors. Now signal strength jumps between 0 and 80 with bit errors between 0 and 2000. There seems to be a rhythmical pattern to this 0/80 signal strength. Have tried retune and it takes a while but still picks up Blackhill. Anyone any further ideas, wondering about interference from any newly switched on transmitters close to Lochwinnoch(possibly 4G)?
