alan gooch: Stockland Hill is predicted to have poor signal at your postcode, with only the Budleigh Salterton Freeview Lite relay being predicted to provide good reception. What signal strength and quality do you get for ITV/Channel 4? Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV?

Dave Lindsay: I have a new TV Ariel on my roof and was shown the reception strength's available to me I had to select Stockland mast as this was clearly the strongest, but knowing the history of high pressure interference we experience wouldn't it be possible for local news to announce that it's possible reception could be affected. I am sure must people check their leads etc on their tv's. surely with all the technology out there this should be irradiated send out a stronger signal.

Lydia Foster:

Transmitting a stronger signal would make matter worse for most people! Just be patient until the effects of the current high pressure moves away from the UK.
