My Sky News and Dave (Com5 /ArqA) is weak and variable. All TVs on my aerial and the same next door on a different aerial. Like this for a month or so.

The Wrekin (Telford and Wrekin, England) transmitter
Monday 25 February 2019 11:48AM

My Sky News and Dave (Com5 or ARQA) has lost signal.
This is worst in the morning (6am or so) and usually comes back mid morning.
I am 27km away from Wreking (SY4 1LR in Ruyton XI Towns)
I can see the transmitter from my bedroom window and the wide-band aerial is in the loft.
But I note it transmits on fairly low power - 10kw.
Other channels are 20kw.
Sutton Coldfield is further away (75km) but transmits at 200kw
Would I do better on that?
Or is there a problem at Wrekin?
