"Well I went up on the roof yesterday PM with my signal strength meter. On the higher channels I get about 650 uV (unamplified) which gives me a good solid result. But on channel 29 (538 MHz) i get a much weaker signal, about 100 uV. The weird thing…"

"Yes of course Willis, I hadn't checked and my poor old brain gets confused sometimes! Indeed I had assumed that Waiatarua would be the strongest signal  ans was rather surprised when my Grove- Hoverman gave me a max signal so far East.…"

"Ah. The joy of living in the fringes. As you have a UHF strength meter first thing I'd do is check the signal strength for each mux. Sounds like the TVNZ mux has dropped just below minimum reception level. Could be any number of reasons but the…"
