Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Oxford transmitter area
Stephen: There was supposed to be shuffle to the 5G clearance arrangement even trailed on the late BBC one news and on pop ups on PSB1.
So presumably got it all to happen again sometime this year, particularly as the comms that have moved do not appear to be at their final positions.
COMM 6 moved to C31 and COMM7 moved to

Stephen & Adrian Crafter: The first frequency change at Oxford took place this morning, which COM5 moving to UHF channel 31 and COM7 moving to 55 (they were previously the other way around).
Adrian Crafter: You appear to have entered an Edinburgh postcode into this website at some point (going by the links which have appeared under your post).

You should be getting really strongf signals on all channels as you are just 3 km away from the transmitter! Check all the aerial connections you can safely reach. Do this by unplugging each plug/socket and then refitting. Then recheck your channels. If that doesn't resolve it, check what the reported signal strengths are for each multiplex, usually shown on the manual tuning page - but DO NOT perform a retune. The ideal strengths are betwee 60% and 85% for all channels. Anything less or more will cause reception problems.
