Virginia Ford: Hi, we also found we had lost BBC Radio Sussex this morning.
I did a web search and found that the transmission frequency has.changed.
I did a re-tune both automatic and manual, but found I was getting absolutely no signal from the new multiplex, 10B.
Suggest you do a re-tune, hope you have better luck than me!

Virginia Ford: Hi Virginia,i have also lost all DAB sussex stations they have messed up the frequencies on these DAB. BBCsussex can now only be received on FM anologue as the Whitehawk transmitter has insufficient power for DAB,its will also affect freeview over Christmas in the Brighton and Hove areas.I was assured when i phoned BBC Sussex ,that the problem would be resolved,but they have made no effort to try and solve this and looking at the updates on the Whitehawk transmitter website they say there are no problems,perhaps they dont listen to radio, instead of getting on with solving the problem or maybe the tecnology is too clever for them to understand how these transmitters work.If they ever decide to switch off anologue we wont be able to hear any radio yhe old saying goes if its not broke dont mend it.Im missing my beloved Smooth Sussex station ,instead of shifting the frequncies change all these to FM VHF long live anologue from an avid radio fan.

Terry Avey: Hi,Terry.If you and Virginia Ford are both trying to listen to the Sussex local DAB stations, known as the Sussex Coast local multiplex, we wonder if you have realised that this group of stations changed frequency from channel 11B to channel 10B. This should NOT mean that your DAB radios are unable to receive them, but simply that you should have carried out a retune when the changes took place. The frequency of channel 10B is 211.648 megaHertz, however, you don't have to know that unless you wanted to do a manual tune. An automatic scan - preferably a FULL SCAN should be carried out. This should result in your being able to pick up ALL stations available in the Sussex coast area which will include BBC National, Digital One, Sound Digital AND the Sussex Coast stations. What's more, Brighton is one of the cities that has a small-scale DAB trial taking place over the next 9 months and this gives you a FURTHER TEN STATIONS, and these are on Channel 9A (202.928 MHz). As I have already said above, a full rescan will give you all available channels regardless of which channels they are actually on, as long as you make sure it's a full scan, sometimes called a pan-Europe or 'whole of Band III' scan. A full scan is the opposite of a quick scan! Don't do a quick scan!!! It's not a case of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it', because the frequency changes were necessary to accommodate more choice of stations on DAB radio. Hope this helps, Richard, Norwich, Sunday 12th. June at 3:15 p.m.
