At location HR2 0SJ we have had no reception at all today 31/10/18 from mid morning and is still not transmitting now at 22:47. Your information states 'Off air: DSO related until 10:45' and currently that there are no problems.

E J Gooding: The Peterchurch transmitter changed frequencies yesterday, therefore you will need to retune.

I have been receiving reduced power/nil signals from Peterchurch transmitter for over a week, but no work to the transmitter is noted on this site. Tried retuning twice. More channels listed and all briefly available, but the extra channels soon permanently reverted to 'No Signal' status and the usual channels still at reduced or no signal.

My address code is HR2 0SJ and wish to report there has been no Peterchurch transmission signals for many hours today 02/01/22. The reception ceased abruptly and a 'No signal' notice displayed onscreen. I see according to this web site that there are no reported problems !

Edward John Gooding:

The transmitter updates that appear here depend on updates to a BBC Engineering page which has had no update since New Years Eve, I would imagine due to the Bank Holiday etc..
However the BBC's individual transmitter page does show the BBC reporting a fault -
The transmitter was off-air from 7:49:03pm to 10:28:26pm on 2nd Jan 2022 due to a fault.

Your signals should be back now. IF you retuned when you had no signal (which is never a good idea) it will have most likely just cleared your correct tuning and you'll need to retune again to get your correct tuning back.
