Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Darvel transmitter area
We live by Troon Marina, so just outwith the published coverage area of the Troon relay transmitter. Freeview reception is normally fine, however, but, over the past few days of wild weather, pixelation has been very severe in the evening only - no problem at all during the day! The aerial's in the loft of a small block of flats with a distribution amplifier and internal cabling, so direct weather impact seems unlikely. All flats are similarly affected. Is a wet roof in a marginal signal area a sufficient explanation? Thanks!
