I believe this particular reception issue which is currently affecting just one of Bromsgrove's 6 multiplex's (multiplex 44) may have existed for some time and despite the large number of channels on this one multiplex I suspect that many people who do have difficulty receiving these channels may possibly have put it down to their individual TV or TV Aerial being at fault.

Although it is highly unlikely that it would be an individual TV fault that's causing the reception problem there is a good chance that any reception difficulties of the above channels may be partly due to the TV Aerial or TV amplifier / booster or even just the location of the Aerial / property relative to the transmitter at Worms Ash.

I'm sure that some people reading this may just think......ahhh, but surely if it was my TV Aerial at fault then I wouldn't be receiving all the other channels, BBC and ITV etc etc.

I purposely used the word "partly" above as this afternoon I was able to carry out some of my own tests and could clearly see that to have good reception of this multiplex very much depended on the critical alignment of the TV Aerial and all other components in the signal path from the Aerial to the TV in the lounge being in good / perfect condition.

This is unusual as most modern high gain Digital Aerials will often cope with a large margin of error with regards to their alignment, I often notice a sufficient signal strength and quality being maintained even when the Aerial is way off alignment, even as much as 60 or 70 degrees either side of the correct alignment will still provide a uncorrupted, perfect TV picture.

So in short, I'm sure that there is an ongoing problem with this multiplex which may only develop as a reception problem for some households who have a less than perfect TV Aerial system.

I'm sure that this transmission fault will eventually be rectified but in the meantime I'm keen to hear from anyone who's currently having problems with the reception of these channels. I'm not suggesting a call out from myself to rectify any Aerial issues you may have (although this is possible) I'm more interested in knowing your location relative to the transmitter and to have an idea as to how many households might be affected.

I am always willing to offer free and comprehensive advise over the phone which can sometimes resolve the problem altogether.
