Anyone notice a drop in power?

Post by G8NZR » Mon Nov 05, 2018 4:53 am

I've had an email asking if YT is on-air or reduced power? Without visiting the site, it looks okay, but has anyone noticed a drop in effective power from YT? We will be visiting in the next week or two for its winter check up. :o

I don't receive it anywhere past Poundland on the M62 these days but this is since the Rack update earlier in the year.
My usual testing place along our lane is a complete no no, I have to go to Whitley to get a (viewable) signal.

On Friday I didn't have a picture anywhere past Tingley, I'll put the AE on the roof going home tonight.

Thanks for your reply Graham. Things have moved on a bit since my post and I'm reasonably happy that all is okay with YT. Last night, there were some contacts through YT and nobody mentioned anything unusual! I think everything is okay, but we will be having a site visit before long anyhow, and I'm hoping to change the pre-amps for something better (on the digital inputs only). Rob was receiving YT up in N.Yorks so the signal output must be as it was previously.

Don't know why it seems a lttle worse since the upgrade, as nothing changed on TX.

Yep it looked about right this evening, last pictures just past Poundland.

No worries Kay, EY should be moving to Weedley shortly and home QTH should come within range.
