Noticed this week they have turned their tx power down, used to pick up easily with a handheld scanner, now only receiving on my Airspy/Discone.

Airspy R2 + Discone
SDRPlay RSP2Pro + CrossCountryWireless Loop + diy uhf chocblock dipole.

unliky to have turned power down as users dont have access to power settings in normal use as they would most likley turn them up ...
either they developed a fault in the coax or arial or the arial has been re-sited for one reason or another........Or something has been errected between them and you scaffolding maybe or new building going up.
draw a line on a map and check it out.

I'm only a mile or so from the town centre and struggling to receive them now on handheld, wonder if it's something to do with the development of the Market Place? The "Pubwatch" transmitter which I believe is situated further away from me on the sea front came up briefly (166.8875) and sounded just as strong as normal.

Their power has been back to normal for the last few weeks, also 165.1375 using DMR is getting used more, they could be starting to transition.
