Has anbody experienced poor reception in the North West (Liverpool, Preston, Blackpool) in the past week or two?

I'm trying to rule out my equipment - I recently bought one of those TomTom TMC receivers from Currys - but didn't manage to get any reception with it.

And for the last week or so, I've not seen much reception with my GTM-21 connected to my Garmin C550.

There have been a few times when the lock for TMC on my TomTom 520, using the RDS-TMC aerial that was available just before the mini-USB version (.014 I think), has taken up to 10 minutes, but once connected, it stays up and running throughout my trips.

If I disconnect the adaptor and then reconnect, it will get a lock almost straight away.

I've done three trips of over 100 miles in the last couple of days and it seems to have worked most of the time.

EDIT - I should have said that my trips have been in the Blackburn / Bolton, Ormskirk / St Helens & Liverpool areas.
