    Have the BBC/Sky boosted the digital signal from Emley Moor in the last week? I have noticed the interference on my small tv has started again, just like when they started broadcasting a digital signal years ago.
    I'm about to upgrade my tv and possibly buy a dvd recorder. Would it be worth investing in a new aerial, I have direct line of sight to Emley Moor? Any suggestions welcome!

    If you've been watching the weather lately, you will have noticed that we have a fairly static area of high pressure over us at present.

    High pressure causes atmospheric phenomena which makes RF signals from distant areas carry much further than normally.

    It is possible that the interference you are seeing is actually co-channel interference from another transmitter (possibly, one on the continent).
