I have checked the signal levels here and is what I normally get it's possible for interruptions as there has been work going on at Winter Hill.

As we can get a good signal on a wet piece of string we need someone in a low signal area to comment.

I had a similar problem with some muxes pixelating from Winter Hill last year and it was caused by water in the coax but cable was old.
