Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Waltham transmitter area
Is you aerial pointing at the Ashbourne relay - rods vertical & pointing NE - where you will only get the 3 main PSB multiplexes OR is it pointing S with the rods horizontal at the Sutton Coldfield transmitter where all multiplexes are available?
If it's pointing at Sutton Coldfield there is Planned Engineering work this week with "Possible weak signal". This is probably in advance of a power increase to one of the Local multiplexes on 30th October (UHF channel 48).
No other multiplexes are changing and I doubt you'll be able to get that local multiplex even with the increase in power from 10kW to 15kW.
