I'm getting no signal. Don't know if the transmitter or my aerial has been damaged by the weather this afternoon.
Is anyone currently receiving DVB-T from Kapiti (Ngarara) at the moment?

Its back now, and from what I've seen on the news, it must have been very close to the path of the "tornado".

Thanks for the confirmation!  Have been in Wgtn all day but my better half informs me its been a bit "windy"!  Wonder if its a hangover from the damage from a couple of days ago making it a bit more susceptible at the moment.  Hope they sort it soonish.

Its been upand down 4 times since the one on Saturday, that only the ones that I know about.

Ngarara is not a reliable site, has no backup mains feed and they are only 50w transmitters.


Not a good advert  for Freeview.
