Could you please tell me if the power of this aerial has been turned up because I'm concerned it may be pushing out more power than it should be

Richard: We dont know where you are, so we have no idea as to what signal you should get. If the signal strength is too high for your TV, then get some attenuators, which cut down the signal strength.

Why cannot we get Drama and ITV 3 channels? We used to get these but no longer do so. Also there are times during rain and also daytime when there is severe pixilation on all BBC channels

Tony, your first question is clearly answered in the general information about Seagry Court higher on the page: "The Seagry Court (Swindon, England) mast is a public service broadcasting (PSB) transmitter, it does not provide these commercial (COM) channels:" (this includes Drama and ITV3). As far as I remember they were never offered from Seagry Court.
Because of our location our aerial pointing towards Seagry Courts also picks up Oxford, so we receive these channels, but not always clearly.
pixilation: are you at the edge of the signal area? How strong is the signal in general? Are you sure that you get your signal from Seagry Court?
