One other note, Reigate transmitter is 306 degrees, roughly where my aerial is pointing, of course. But I note the Crystal Palace aerial is the other side of North, at 15 degrees, I'd guess, so I wouldn't expect to be receiving signals direct.

Is it possible the Reigate transmitter is repeating the Crystal Palace transmissions?

Gary Higginson: I think I have a few clues already: the 4G comments above, the number of mobile masts near me as appear on my "Free view Map", and another read of the BBC website reception help pages, leading to the at800.tv website, plus only the BBCA multiplex being affected, on channel 60 @ -786MHz, just below the 4G 800MHz band.

I suspect a new 4G mast/service has been ramping up its transmission power over the last few weeks, causing my worsening interference.

I've submitted an enquiry on the at800.tv site. I expect they'll send me a filter and hopefully this will restore my BBCA channel from Reigate transmitter.

I'll update what happens, and hopefully this may be useful to others.

Thanks to this site's providers and contributers, as it's given me very useful info for set up and problem solving over the last few years.

Merry Christmas!

I am having reception interference and picture break up on certain days and loss of picture and information on certain channels only.

This problem has only just got worse over the last 2 weeks or so.

I have completely reset the tv's to factory presets and retuned but this has not helped. Would some sort of filter help?

Please help...

Hi, I'm watching Reigate free view. A note today says al Jazeera has moved from 133 to 108. But 108 is not xmitted from Reigate. Have I lost AJ forever? Chris

I am having reception interference and picture break up and loss of picture and information on certain channels only. I have now lost all BBC channels.

This problem has only just got worse from Tuesday 12th July or so.

I have done auto and manual re-scans and checked connections - all to no avail.

I live in Leigh and can see the Reigate transmitter on the top of Reigate hill.
Can you help please?

Andrew Corbett: Hi, Andrew. If you have ensured all connections are secure, all I can suggest is a 'first time installation retune or 'factory reset ' retune with the aerial completely disconnected first, so that your receiver will forget all previous data including any corrupted data, followed by replacing the aerial connection and then another 'first-time installation' or 'factory reset' re-tune. There are no reported problems on Reigate. Good Luck and let us know how you get on, Richard, Norwich.
