Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Rosemarkie transmitter area
Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
Having reception problems on 5-USA Picture breaking up, but no spurious patterns as of another channel.
Is power reduced ? Normally no problems. My location Lower Foyers. From house roof, beside my aerial, I can see the Tx aerial.
No problems on other channels, at least those tried.

5 USA is on the same multiplex as ITV3, Drama, etc. So if they are being received without problem than there must be some other problem. Transmitters do not go to reduced power on one multiplex only unless there is a fault and none are reported and that would affect all the other programmes on that same multiplex.
So to help you we need a full post code, just the location is not sufficient to look up the reception conditions.
If you can see the transmitter mast you may have too much signal so please check what the reported signal strength is on the SDN (COM4) multiplex that carries 5 USA, etc. You need the signal to be between 60% and 85% ideally, see the article 'too much of a good thing' on this website at https://ukfree.tv/article…d_f.
