here on the east coast at this time of year we often get 'no signal' appear on screen . Why is it that the BBC and ITV multiplexes are the last to succumb to this?

Just come across your comments, thanks.
I think the mux on C31 is probaly the worst of the lot, though all are affected at times. When I lose BBC and ITV I have tried the HD mux, which does not work either.
I am talking about all my aerials. When one loses signal, so do the rest. I am wondering if a log periodic would be better, we have plenty of signal strength for one.

Chris SE. Thank you for your comments. I thought log periodic only came in wideband form, and that was also why they existed. I have experimented with one I reconstructed which was found in a skip, and found the perfomance at least matched that of a triboom yagi.
I see that the elements are spaced at different measurements, thus also having some of the director /reflector attributes of a yagi.
I test my aerials only 6ft above ground, and assume that at height their differences in performance will remain the same.
