Hello Everyone

What a fantastic website! I hope you can help me.

I have recently bought a house in Felsted which is on the overlap between Crystal Palace and Sudbury. I was previously living in another house in the same estate that was rented and had excellent signal from Sudbury.

The house that I have bought had 2 aerials installed: one in the loft (disconnected and pointing roughly east) and one outside on a pole that was in use and pointing South (Crystal Palace)

The signal from Crystal Palace wasn't great, so I thought I would see if I could repurpose the disconnected aerial to recieve from Sudbury. I have reconnected this old aerial and pointed it towards Sudbury. Following a return, I have all the channels except ArqA (Dave etc are missing) all the other channels have 90%+ signal and perfect signal quality.

Where have I gone wrong, and how do I get ArqA?
