New Northern Ireland and Dorset BBC DAB transmitter
The BBC have brought two new DAB transmitters into service this week.
The first is from the Bridport transmitter, central Bridport in Dorset, England.
The second is at Maddybenny More, on the north-eastern coast of Northern Ireland.
This transmitter coivers the Coleraine, Portrush, Castlerock and Bushmills area.
Two further Northern Ireland DAB transmitters are expected soon.
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.
