Our aerial is on the roof at NN38UT, it is pointed across some trees in the distance. Most times we get a good signal but over the Christmas period 2019 it was a disaster. I wanted to watch "Still Open Open All Hours" on BBC1, it was unwatchable. As I type this it is okay but for how long? Using a signal strength meter from Screwfix I only get LED light. I notice from the Brian Butterworth map published 2004 we are in the edge of the reception are. Is this upto date??? There is a masthead Amp. We did have a Optima filter, Chan21-60, 470-790MHz in the loft, I have removed this just for the moment as we were still getting the problems. I have since learnt it should be between the aerial and the Amp-a job for a man with a ladder. In general it the first 16 channels that are affected. Please help if you can.
