Peter Hilton-robinson: The commercial multiplexes (C41, 44, 47) will remain on low power until 18th April.

Prior to 22/2/2012, I could receive programs from Com5(ArqA) and Com6(ArqB). Now reception is limited to a badly distorted picture or a blank screen. Is the signal strength going to be increased sometime, or am I always going to have this problem?

John Costello: The power of the COMs will be increased on 18th April (Digital UK Tradeview suggests that it might be 4th April).

It could be that the high power signals are desensitising your receiver, meaning that the nearby (in a frequency sense) lower power signals aren't "heard" as well.

If you have a signal booster, you could try removing it or reducing its level of amplification (if it allows). Or add an attenuator to bring down the level of all the signals in the hope that a balance can be struck where the low power ones are high enough but which the high power ones are reduced enough to increase the sensitivity.

An analogy would be your eyes. When more light is around, the pupils close and hence, when you're in a room at night with the light on, you can't see outside very well. Turn the light off, and your eyes become more sensitive to outside. Unfortunately you can't turn off the bright lights in this instance, only fit shades to reduce all (in the hope of striking a working balance).

Removing the booster gives me no programmes at all. Everything was OK until the digital switchover when I assumed power would be increased. If "very low" is the increased strength what was it before?

I have to use Hannington, even though I am on the fringe of reception because I have a huge obstacle (ie a big church) which wrecks signals from Rowridge.

Looks like I wait until April when according to Arqiva the power will increase on the "commercial channels"...

Hannington COMs:

The change in transmission mode yesterday led to a loss of 6dB ( ie signals reduced to 1/4 previous) for the same transmitted power. The COMs cannot use the new antenna system until London switches over
