Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Whitehawk Hill transmitter area
I accidentally posted this on Rowridge so reposting here:
Recently we keep having problems with BBC transmissions. Our aerial is pointing to Whitehawk Hill and also receives a signal from Findon. On BBC 1 and 2 the signal strength varies between zero and one hundred percent, and fluctuates wildly between the two. This means we can only watch BBC on HD or iPlayer but not everything is available, especially local news. All other channels receive a steady one hundred percent.
There is an amplifier which has caused no problems and I've also attached a 4G filter to one TV to see if that helps. Any further advice would be welcome.

Mark Tennent: If you are seeing 100% signal strength then you have too much signal and your TV's tuner is becoming overloaded and is unable to cope. If your amplifier has a variable gain control, turn it down until you can receive all channels without breakup (select BBC1 on your TV then view the signal strength and adjust the amplifier until strength is down to around 75% then check all the other channels are still working - you'll probably find all have a similar strength but may vary by a few %).
If your amplifier doesn't have a variable gain, you'll need an attenuator to reduce the signal strength such as the one linked below which should be connected somewhere between the amplifier and TV (you'll need one per TV if they're fed by separate outputs from your amplifier rather than one amplifier output going into a splitter).

That is good information, thank you. Why is it that we have had a good signal for 10+ years and only since January this year we have needed the attenuator? As we have a few TV receivers here, I'm wondering whether a different amplifier would be easier. Got any suggestions for one with variable gain? Preferably something from B&Q for example, that I can take back if it doesn't work.
At the moment the signal goes into the amplifier in one room downstairs then via a splitter shared by a couple of TVs. The aerial's signal is also shared by every other TV feed (4 or 5 in total) and the amplified signal used to be good on them all. We usually only use one TV at a time, maybe two if the TV receiver connected to a computer is also working or another TV is recording a channel. Is it worth trying turning off the amplifier?
