KIdle (Bradford, England) DAB transmitter
Monday 11 August 2014 1:50PM
There is something seriously wrong with single frequency networks.
I am only able to pick up the BBC National DAB from the Idle Transmitter indoors.
So BBC Radio 1 and BBC Asian Network are fine. What I can't listen to is D1 National and Yorkshire DAB Multiplexes.
So I can't listen to talkSport or Capital FM on DAB. The Transmitter is only a few miles away and the Power is in Kilowatts!

Who ever proposed the idea of Single Frequency Networks needs to get his head checked. I can receive the signal from the Idle Transmitter a few miles away on the outskirts of Bradford. The Town Centre of Bradford dips down (cities in the Pennines are between very big rolling hills) with many tall buildings around so the coverage is bad there. The proposed new transmitter in Bradford City Centre will solve reception problems in the centre of Town but could end up causing problems for me since it's only a mile away and the signal from Idle also gets to me. The whole DAB Transmission system needs to be redesigned if the Government wants DAB to take off!
