New! 1000s of new DAB and FM radio coverage maps
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 https://ukfree.tv/radio/digitalstations/BBC_Radio_Cymru
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).
DAB Multiplex Maps
This is a multiplex map, so the colours are all the same.

Thanks for your improvement work. I just tried a postcode which showed the wrong transmitter feeding the area. Please look to amend the transmitter for SL8 5DQ. It's not High Wycombe but it should list the Wooburn Transmitter (which is also closer). Your map of the Wooburn coverage area as shown here: Wooburn (Buckinghamshire, England) Freeview Light transmitter includes this postcode area so I'm not sure what's gone wrong. Both are relays of Crystal Palace though. I hope that helps.

Paul Murphy: Thanks for your post.I've had a good look and it seem to be at one of those knife-edge positions.Sometimes this happens when the postcode (all of it) resolves to a large area. In a city, a postcode can sometimes refer to just one building, or just a few. In rural areas the postcode can be quite a physically large area.You are right, if you use the GPS option on your phone you would get the "right" answer, but the postcode isn't accurate enough.
