I listen to BBC radio five live frequently every day. For the last few weeks the reception has been very poor - all of a sudden the volume disappears and can take several minutes before it comes on again. I switched on Five Live this afternoon to listen to a football commentary and the radio went quiet at least ten times in the first fifteen minutes! I don't think I can be the only person in Broadstone, Dorset to experience this loss of sound. Any ideas please - is there a problem with the transmitter at the moment?
