On the website is a Technical Enquiries page that has a nice little form to fill in. That form obviously generated the following e-mail. ( The stuff with ?? was filled in, I just don't want it on here! )

technical enquiry from: Martyn Clapham
There appears to be no signal for five, five US and five life availavble from the Pendle Forest transmitter. It has been of since dinner time (
at least ) and while there have been a couple of times it has reappeared, they have lasted only a few seconds. I tried checking your transmitter
maintainance page but that is seriously out of date ( last entry for Sept 2007 ) and is also cluttered with information going back to November
receive five with: Aerial - private
live in tower block or housing complex: False
digital TV or set-top box: True
date problem started: 12:45 on 3/2/08
would like to receive further information: <#information#>
That bounced! Methinks the website is buggered as well as the transmitter!
I was going to add an additional bit but thought it might upset them. This was :-
'Given that your revenue comes from the advertising 'levy' imposed directly ( or indirectly ) on every person in the UK, rather than just the heads of household targeted by the licence fee, surely you have more responsibily to provide a good service rather than less when compared to the BBC!'
