Thank you for the thorough troubleshooting guide. I'll work my way 
through it if it comes to that.

At the moment it's been confirmed that over the last few weeks we've had 
  spates of poor signal levels. Coupled with several googled items that 
suggests others have had the same issues as me when signals were poor, 
I'll explore that first.

Thanks again
