I live in Hassocks. We always seem to have freeview signal prolems when high pressure weather systems occur, and when foggy etc. our antenna faces the Midhurst transmitter. Tonight is a particular example where virtually all ITV, Channel 4 etc were down to zero signal quality.

IHassocks is very low land kevel below the siuth downs . It seems to me a local reoeater transmitter woukd resolve the issue.

I d like you comments

Geoff Petto: Talking Pictures (Freeview channel 81) have announced that they will be moving to the COM6 multiplex on 30th November and will therefore be available from Midhurst from then onwards.

Vintage TV (channel 82) have not announced any plans to move from COM7, which along with COM8 is a temporary multiplex available from 30 main transmitters covering around 75% of UK households and is due to close in 2020 (with a possible extension until 2022). COM7/8 will not be added to any further transmitters.
