jk : A further check made on the RT investigation site confirms that seen on DUK's transmitter engineering site, insomuch that no engineering work is taking place and no faults with the transmitter have been reported.

Although you are only located at 9 miles away from Craigkelly, due to the terrain in your area the signal path from the mast reaching your location is at a very low angle, this making it more vulnerable to reacting to slight changes in atmospheric conditions as well as changes to the surface of the terrain, e.g: reflections from wet foliage such as trees, this type of thing manifesting itself more so in cases where the signal level that a TV or box is running at is not that terribly much above the cut off threshold for reception, any slight dips and its under the level, this level varying from brand to brand dependant on the sensitivity of the tuner.

Craigkelly serves large parts of Edinburgh as well as Fife, and I would think that numerous complaints would have been made by viewers in said areas if the transmitter was completely down, but as far as I am aware none have been made.

To check if that said is liable to apply in your case, go into your TV or boxes tuning menu and select manual tune, then enter Ch27 (Craigkelly's BBC1) into the box but pause at this point, (do not press scan) because on most (but not all) equipment if any signal is there, no matter how low, the level will be indicated.

Have you made any enquiries with anyone in your immediate vicinity?

I turned on my TV this morning and tried to get BBC News 24. I sometimes forget the new channel no that started with 3 so I go to 80 and that tells me what it has moved to. This morning it didn't and other channels had "no information". I did a retune and found BBC News 24 on channel 107!!! All seems ok now but why has this happened. I did the September retune.

jk: Your signal might never 'magically' come back. You have a problem with your system, and its not going to go away. It might get better for a bit, but its not going to stop having a problem.

Its a good bet that it gets worse when there is rain, and gets better when it is dry. When it rains, mositure gets into a broken connection/seal or worn cable, and kills the signal. When it drys out again, it comes back. But its not going to get better. Call a professional.
