I have an aerial on the top of a tall pole on the roof of the 3 storey house where I live (so pretty high), and last night (Thursday 30th April) just before 10pm I lost freeview reception completely, getting a 'no reception' message. I switched to freesat where reception was fine. I checked 30 minutes later and still no reception on freeview. This morning I have freeview reception again. Any ideas?

David: This sounds like failure of a signal amplifier or its power supply. Don't assume that just because the light is on that it's functioning normally -- all it's telling you is that there is power there.

Dave Lindsay: Thanks for the reply Dave, but I don't think that's it as freeview reception was perfect this morning without me taking any action.

David: If your getting 'no signal', then your either getting nothing or a signal so low that the tuner isn't bothering with it.

You may not feel David's excellent advice is applicable, so here is another one. Your aerial is attached to your TV by a thin (6mm?) cable which is exposed to all weathers, and is constantly under pressure from the wind, rain, etc. Eventually, somethings got to give, and perhaps a small break or crack in the waterproofing on a connection appears. Thats OK when its dry, but during the night moisture condenses and gets into that small crack, and kills the signal. In the morning, the moisture dries out and you've got your signal back again.

Check the signal strength - if its really low, then the aerial system is marginal (but perfectly fine) until some thing happens. Your just 11km from Crystal Palace (assuming thats the transmitter your using), so you should be getting a stonkingly strong signal.
