I realise that, but things can change or loosen. The recent hot weather might have heat cycled a marginally tight fixing.
Everything looks present, intact, and pointing in the right direction (from ground level inspection).

That sounds like trees perhaps. The buggers do tend to grow :dunno:
Looking across the rooftops from upstairs, that is a possibility with nothing I could do other than get a taller pole! :cry:

The alternative is to switch to Wenvoe :frantic:

Years ago, in the days of analogue, I bought a new build flat in the middle of a block - the two storey ones that look like terraced houses. About 75yds away, between me and Crystal Palace (about 25 miles away) there was a big Oak tree.

The people on each side of of us had the usual contract aerials on a standard bracket and pole for each flat, but the aerial installer had a struggle with ours. In the end me and the person in the flat above shared a big high gain aerial on a massive pole via an amplifier in the loft (fed from upstair's lighting circuit).
It wasn't cheap. :(

My UHF30 seems to have died, I had M*A*S*H on until a little while ago, now there's no signal.

I think that's a low-power local mux.

It's not CCI is it BH? I frequently have that which usually wipes out one or more MPXs.
I have two aerials that I can swap between and switching them usually, but not always, fixes it.

Maybe, perhaps that's the answer to all my problems with this high pressure about, but I also notice DAB and FM are pretty bad while I'm out in the car.
