the problem with the mynydd machen transmitter is the design of the transmitting aerial,if you live close and low down the signal is poor,the further away you are the signal improves.i live about two and a half miles away line of sight in risca on a hill when we have the slightest high pressure i get picture breakup or no signal due to interference from stockland hill.that is with the correct group aerial mounted vertical and pointing at the mast.

hi dave,signals from risca tranmitter here are non exsistant as a hill in the way and kings weston hill is too strong eg set top aerial upstairs gives good pics.after switchover i was on wenvoe but a coppice of very large trees have grown taller and made viewing very bad especially in windy weather despite antiference group b xg9 on 12ft pole.i pick up coms bbc and and itv west by an aerial pointing at mendip and diplexed [triax a-e unit.many thanks barrie

Since com7 has gone to ch 36 I am having problems with it pixellating and sound cutting out when checking the signal on my you view box it was a lot weaker than ch 33 and ch 35 is the transmitter output on ch 36 at much lower power than the other two thirties channels.I can see the mendip mast on a clear day from my downstairs lounge window and have a professionally installed log periodic roof aerial. my postcode is np11 6qx.

Have been getting very intermittent sound dropouts only lasting for a fraction of a second on BBC Wales hd only, has anybody else noticed this problem on Mynydd Machen transmitter or any of its relays.regards Barrie from Risca.
