Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Caldbeck transmitter area
I have a guest house with 4 rooms all which have free view digital.
The aerial and cabling have all been recently professionally replaced recently.
In the mornings guest report that the picture can be fragmented (I believe this is called pixelation)
can anything be done to correct this.
The picture is good at other times
The picture is poor when the weather is bad wet/and or windy is this just a feature of the digital signal or can it be fixed?
