I'm aware of a new 4G mobile phone mast that has just been installed and activated a week or so ago in Barbourne, Worcester.

​I've recently been called out to three properties in Barbourne. All of which had the same things in common. 1 - TV picture breakup on almost every channel. 2 - TV Aerials point towards the Malvern transmitter 3 - A masthead amplifier installed on the TV Aerial mast. 4 - All properties were within a half mile radius of Security House, Barbourne and finally 6 - A high level of 4G signal arriving at the TV end of the coax (as indicated on my meter)

So if you live in the Barbourne area of Worcester and already know that you have a signal amplifier/booster attached to your Aerial mast as well as it's associated power supply at the back of your TV set and have recently started having reception problems (from early July 2015 onwards) then it's more than likely going to be caused by 4G

Most if not almost all homes in Barbourne have their TV Aerials pointing towards the Malvern TV Transmitter. This transmitter is unique in the area that I cover in that it uses part of the TV band to transmit TV which is also very close in frequency to the frequencies used by 4G which in turn increases the possibility of interference.

​If you have a HD receiving TV there is also an increased chance of seeing breakup on the HD channels, BBC1 101, BBC2 102 and ITV 103 etc. The reason for this is that the Malvern transmitter transmits it's HD TV channels at a frequency of around 790 MHz which is the last frequency used on the UK TV band and just a short distance away from the 4G mobile phone transmissions starting at 806 MHz.

For further advise you can call me on my mobile throughout the day on -
07850 969 307 or if you are sure that you are seeing interference caused by 4G you can call a freephone helpline number on - 0808 1313 800.
