Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Keelylang Hill transmitter area
hiya, im guessing you are doing this site voluntarily. is there no "official" comments/ complaints dept for the transmitters?
I am having awful reception this eve (but its going from normal service to no service while trying to watch any channel- so i dont feel that retuning would be needed would it?). I know i am a long way from keeley lang so there is a possibility of interference but i havent experienced this poor quality since i got the telly this year.
there is no apparent problems with keeley lang, so it says. and i wont know till the morn if anyone else here has had probs this eve, so anyone else getting probs with this orkney transmitter tonight? cheers!

hels: You havn't included a postcode, so we dont know where you are in relation to the transmitter. The transmitter looks OK, and in most cases, its peoples systems, not the transmitter thats the problem.
Could be a couple of things: The most likely is that you've got a loose connection or other problem with your aerial system. Since your problem started when you changed the TV, change the aerial lead, since its possible its come loose, etc. Could be the TV is tuned to the wrong transmitter - check that its the right one.
