    Weirdest thing just happened about 5 mins ago, my digital radio just lost connection suddenly and couldn't connect to any radio station... then I went online to see if I could get any radio station, none of the 'listen online' worked for BRMB, Heart etc. Turned the TV on, no signal going to my freeview = no channels...

    About 5 mins later the radio came back on, online radio worked and the Freeview came back, all at the same time!

    Freaked me out a bit tbh, I would ask other people in my halls but it's 2am, so maybe not!

    I've just realised that this question is pretty open to people not telling the truth - obviously I cant verify everyone's stories, but if you were affected.. you weren't alone. lol

    OMG I can't believe you just suggested such a preposterous idea.

    It was far more likely an EMP set off by the KGB.

    if it was from the sutton coldfield mast, then they may have switched all their services over to the temporary mast they have built? obviously there would be a period where they were both off... could it have been that possibly.. *nerdy moment*

    Good point - i'm in Nottingham at the minute though but they have a similar thing here I suppose - that's a very sound explanation, I just found it weird that TV, Radio and online radio went all at the same time :dontknow:
