I have retuned this morning to find that the BBC A mux now has frequent break-up. The signal quality is significantly lower than before the move. I'm not sure if it is working on reduced power temporarily, or if we have to put up with this until stage 2 of the switchover or even until the power-up in April.

I am definitely on the correct mux (45) and I have tried a 9dB attenuator which took the signal level from 67 to 58 and the quality from 89 to 69. 45 isn't used by any nearby transmitters. I have no duplicate channels.

Unless my aerial has a frequency notch at ch.45 (unlikely as BBC2 analogue was OK before the switchover), I can't see any other explanation than that the transmitted power is reduced, at least in my direction (SE from Hannington).

We seem to have a very poor signal and it would appear to be getting worse, I have retuned my TV, my post code is SL7 3BU with the switch over will there be an increase in signal strength?

Andy Fraser
Wednesday 8 February 2012 10:19AM Fleet

Brian Jonson: There will be a significant increase in signal strength in April after the London switchover.

There should be smaller increases in signal strength at each stage of the Hannington switchover, but I'm not seeing it so far (see above).

Hi - I'm in west Oxford using Hannington - after a retune this morning I still have no BBC1/2/3

Looking at the list of muxes above I'm not sure which channel this should be on since we're now in the "between 8th & 22nd Feb" hole... ? C45?

Briantist
Wednesday 8 February 2012 10:20AM

Brian Jonson: As shown at the top of the page, multiplex BBCA at 50kW has replaced the old Mux1 BBC service at 20kW at Hannington.

However, at your location you are using the Crystal Palace transmitter and will see no changes until 4th/18th April when the signal go from 20kW to 200kW.

Andy Fraser
Wednesday 8 February 2012 10:22AM Fleet

Ant: Yes ch. 45 for the BBC channels. But I'm not convinced that it is at full power yet (see above).
