If you are losing BBC and ITV in the morning for a few minutes from 10am to 11am then this is normal.

It is a solar outage.

We are at time of the year when the sun is directly behine the UK TV Astra 2 satellites.

The suns energy swamps the signals used for UK TV in Spain.

As these signals are already weaker and hard to receive in Spain, as the sun passes behind the satellites, you can lose reception of BBC and ITV channels for a small number of minutes.

This happens twice a year, in March and October time.
