Thanks Jazz. I'm assuming it had something to do with TV switch over. So things should settle down soon. cheers.

Wye (Kent, England) DAB transmitter

Is there any reason why none of the Kent local stations are on the Faversham transmitter? We are right on the edge of Wye Ashford and Blue hill tsas and loss Gold ect within a few miles of the town. So think maybe this should be looked at.

Thanks, Briantist, but with all due respect that does not answer my question. It seems to me someone, who doesn't no the area, has just looked at a map and said, ok Faversham comes within the TSAs of three tranmitters, but they don't seem to realise there some big hills in the way. Reception is great along the M2 till you get within about three miles of Faversham then it goes! Because the local transmitter doesn't carry Kent Local, WHY? We don't need London based Stations, we've got the BBC for that, but I say again give us our local stations. Please don't let this turn into another TV channel battle when we had to fight to get, then, Southern and not Thames as the powers that be were trying to dump on us.

Hi Brianist, a transmitter at Dunkirk would solve the problem. I guess this will be near or on same site as current FM transmitter from which, not local, Heart broadcasts. At this rate they may as well close the Faversham transmitter because since change over most people have switch to Bluebell hill or Dover for TV due to the limited service from that transmitter. Thanks for your help, but frankly I'm not holding my breath. cheers.
