Heathfield (East Sussex, England) transmitter
Wednesday 18 April 2018 5:09PM

We currently are not receiving any ITV, Channel 4 and many Freeview channels. This started yesterday and has continued today. We have had several such episodes lasting several hours over the last few months with no explanation. We can receive BBC channels and some Freeview channels.

Re-tuning the set simply finds the available programmes, i.e. BBC.

We don't believe this is an equipment or roof mounted aerial problem as our neighbours have the same problem. We can't find any notification of problems on line. Any advice appreciated.

One of our neighbours who also has the signal problem had their aerial changed today in an attempt to overcome the problem The fitter eventually managed to obtain an HD signal by fitting a new aerial (not sure which transmitter), but said the problem is weather (pressure) related and there's not much that can be done! Apparently it's cross-channel interference or something similar?

It would be good to hear from a representative of the Heathfield transmitter to get their opinion.
