Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Mendip transmitter area
My aged mother can't get either BBC1 or 2 on either of her TVs. She has called her local company who deal with tv/Ariel/Sky installations and problems who have confirmed the transmitter is OK.
Her post code is BA129PB and her local transmitter is located at Crockerton. Do you know of any problems/reasons why she is experiencing problems?
