Both were breaking up. This is from Crystal Palace.

Lots of complaint messages from others but I couldn't find an explanation

Last Wednesday morning (March 21st) COM 7 and 8 from Crystal Palace
moved from UHF Ch 33 and 35, to 55 and 56 as part of the three year long
700 MHz clearance scheme.

You most probably have a Group A UHF aerial, and if so both these muxes
will now be beyond the frequency range of it.

A few houses on the Northern fringes of the sussex village where
I live seem to have aerials pointing along the line of stane
street. This is the Roman road to Londinium, so presumably CP,
because I cannot think of any transmitters in the 37 miles
between me and CP.

One of them now has one of those Tri-boom wideband jobs on
a wavy, wibbly wobbly pole in the garden. It has white
coax so presumably a diy job.

I didn't think we could get CP down here, but they are on high
ground, while I only have line of sight to Midhurst. Grrr.
