Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Redruth transmitter area
Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
mr hosking: FreeSports is broadcast on COM8, there is no chance of it being available anywhere in Cornwall unless the channel moved to another multiplex with wider coverage (at a much higher cost to the broadcaster). Whatever is showing on your aunt's TV isn't FreeSports, as there is no coming soon message for a channel which has already been broadcasting for a couple of years.

gone from all the channels last week to losing some and some breaking up this weekend, normally happens when the weather is bad, but currently clear sky. bbc channels breaking up, channel 5 weak or no signal, channels 11 and 12 gone completely.

If you are still having problems, check that your aerial hasn't moved in any recent high winds and that your coax is in good condition and is not damaged. Check your connections by unplugging the coax plugs, check there is no corrosion, and plug them in again - this helps clear any oxidation from the connectors.
