Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Rosneath transmitter area
Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
As our Freeview reception (Roseneath)can often be interrupted by pixelisation, etc we normally use our Freesat box.
However, we received a 4G filter in the post a while ago, I thought I had better check, to find we were getting no Freeview reception at all.
I knew said filter would be useless to us as we have a masthead amplifier, but would, or even could 4G interference leave us with no reception at all ?
The amp's power supply is going OK, but I have no way of knowing if the amp is OK (obviously if not, we'd have no reception), so which is it likely to be ?

Peter: Unfortunately it could be either, because if your mast head amplifier has failed then this will indeed result in no signal being received, however the fact of you having received a 4G filter through the post indicates that AT800, the company contracted to assess the possibility of a household being affected by the installation / commissioning of a new 4G transmitter, has considered your household as liable to be affected.
The majority of the channels used by the Roseneath transmitter (C53-C60) are in the range most vulnerable to be affected by a 4G transmission, the BBC on C49 to a slightly lesser extent, but though as you are using a mast head amplifier, this could be swamped (blocked) from operating correctly should you be located close to the source of a 4G transmission, this being why 4G filters have to be connected in the aerial downlead "before" going into any form of amplification / distribution devices.
Taking that said into consideration, the only way of finding out which of the two situations mentioned applies is by checking the mast head amplifier, but though if the power supply to the amplifier is easily accessible and you can manage to acquire the loan of a simple test meter, you should test for power (5 -12 volts DC) on the socket that feeds the power up to the mast head amplifier, that is assuming that the power supply referred to is of the type that feeds the power "up" the downlead from the amp, as well as separating the signal from said downlead.
In most cases amplifiers fail because of a fault in the power supply, but though a mast head amplifier can fail if there has been any thundery type rainstorms in the area, as static rain can destroy the amplifiers input stage.
