New! 1000s of new DAB and FM radio coverage maps

One of the most requested feature upgrades here on UK Free TV is for the radio maps to show the transmitter coverage areas, as the Freeview pages do. So, please take a look at the upgrade.

After 24 hours of eight CPUs chucking away at the data, I can now proudly announce that UK Free TV will now show you coverage maps for all of the UK radio and television transmitters.

In addition, the code has been cleaned up and now provides a consistent interface.   You can now always single click to get the coverage and double-click to load up a page of details.

Digital (DAB) Radio

Here is an example from

On a map of digital sites, you can click on the buttons at the top right to show a service/mast, or on the marker, or double-click the marker to get the full details.  The different colours show the different broadcast "blocks" (transmission frequencies).

Analogue Radio

On this analogue map, you can use the buttons to select a frequency and site combination, or click to show a site, or double click for more details.

DAB Multiplex Maps

This is a multiplex map, so the colours are all the same.  


I really hope that you find these useful, and enjoy exploring the reception possibilities.

I'm a little confused....

DAB National D1 is missing from the Belmont Mast.

Also in the DAB list Absolute 90's is missing. Have they gone?

And I did notice in my car, that Absolute 80's has increased to 80Kbs from 64.

Blimey go away for a few weeks for work, and return to find everything has changed!

Sorry I meant it's missing off the list on the Belmont page... Belmont (Lincolnshire, England) DAB transmitter

I thought Absolute 90's used to be on the National multiplex?
