Jordy: I've just noticed ballynahinch has been listed as a dab transmitting site sometime in the future. When if ever do you reckon it will be brought into service?

Recently ( early November 2011) BBC DAB signals have improved greatly in the Warrenpoint area of South Down. All the BBC signals are now coming in 'full strength' on my DAB portable radio, except strangly enough , BBC Radio Ulster which just remains at 'Tuning' and never locks onto a signal. Does nayone know if these improved signals are coming from the local Rostrevor transmitter or would they be from Camlough? No sign of the Independant networs yet in this area. Of course, for some time we have been getting the full range of RTE DAB stations from just over the border.

Patrick - That's because Radio Ulster is on the local 12D ensemble not the BBC national service on 12B...
