Mobile phone operators are now rolling out 4G networks across the UK to provide super-fast wireless broadband. The 800 MHz frequencies used by some 4G services are next to the frequencies used for Freeview. There is a small chance this may cause disruption to Freeview services.
Typical symptoms include a loss of sound, pixelated images or loss of some or all Freeview channels. Cable and satellite TV services are very unlikely to be affected.

There is overwhelming evidence from the number of enquiries being received by the CAI office that more and more installers are being caught by the tightening of restriction to construction site access. In more and more cases the only way on to a regulated construction site is by possession of skills card identifying you as competent in your trade and familiar with all necessary health and safety demands.
Over the past years many installers obtained temporary or trainee cards by stating and signing they would be undertaking formal qualification training – either industry pathway or vocational. It is now obvious many of those temporary cards have expired, qualification was not completed and card operators are not re-issuing cards unless proof of competence – i.e. qualification and certification – can be produced.
Thankfully some time ago the CAI secured its ‘Foundation Diploma in Signal Reception’ as a pathway for proving competence to obtain a CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) card and this qualification is one of the accepted routes to obtaining a card.

Just a quick reminder that the Freeview TV guide will be updated and expanded on Wednesday, 3 September 2014 to create extra capacity for new General Entertainment services. As a result, Children’s and News channels will move to new channel numbers.
- The Children’s genre will move from LCN 70 to start at LCN 120
- The News genre will move from LCN 80 to start at LCN 130
