Just this week seem to have lost all channels on ARQA, other channels/MUXes are all fine.

Signal strength is only 14% compared with 50%+ on other MUXes.

Waltham transmitter, wideband rooftop aerial feeding into a distribution amp feeding a freeview TV and PC DVB-T2 card. Both TV and card report no channels for ARQA only.

Removed distribution amp from path, no change.

Can't see any work planned on the normal websites and haven't connected anything new at home that would be blocking 602Mhz.

js: Thanks, haven't heard of that one. Unfortunately I'm running Linux with my tuner card and this seems to to be Windows only utility.

Chris.SE: Yes, I was hoping maybe someone else running off the transmitter could see if they are affected in any way.

Some progress, I bought a new distribution amp/signal booster as my current one was very old and it has boosted the signal enough for my TV to scan the MUX now, although the quality is only around 15% it does show the programmes amazingly. Unfortunately my PC card still can't scan it, probably not as sensitive a tuner.

I can only think for some reason the transmit power for this MUX has been dropped down.
