I am on the west coast of Wales in a village called St Nicholas about 1 mile from the coast, 3 miles west of Fishguard. We have a loft aerial pointed to Mt Leinster sat above another pointed to the local Freeview transmitter - Trefin. The 2 aerial feeds are combined user a splitter in reverse sending the signals down one cable. I could put the aerials on the roof to get an even better reception but even after the 3.5db loss on the combiner still get around 70% signal/100% quality on ch23 and 60% signal/100% quality on ch26. Relatively new set up, had some high winds and rain with no problems. Will see what happens when we get any atmospheric interference.

Going from extremely low to complete loss of signal on the Irish channels today, both muxes are near impossible to watch. From a very good signal to almost nothing, I assumed it was a set up problem. Checked all cables and connections, everything seems fine. Pointed both aerials to Mt Leinster and both are having issues so hoping some sort of atmospheric problem that will fix itself on its own.

18 months later and the loft aerial seems adequate for my location. Get the odd time when the signal quality drops below a watchable level even through the signal strength is within my 'normal' range. This results in both mixes becoming unwatchable, but this is only for an hour or 2 now and again or at worse, for an evening. 90% of the time, it's a stable 60-70% signal strength with 100% signal quality.
