I live in Newbury, Berkshire and get all London DAB multiplexes on a telescopic aerial in my upstairs office (with a Pure One Classic radio). Signal quality is about 80%.
I have a Triax 5 element DAB yagi in the loft pointed east for my DAB tuner in the lounge and get perfect London reception with 99% signal quality - I would imagine I get a signal from Guildford as we have a good view to the south east and can pick up all Guildford FM signals very well like "The Eagle" 96.4.

London 3 has the lowest signal quality. London 1 and 2 is receivable even in my downstairs rooms if I position the radio in a particular place.

I would think this map is very conservative on coverage based on my experience - even if we are on a small hill.

Yes I can confirm that the HD transmissions have started. Try tuning UHF Ch39. The signal is very strong here in Newbury and Freeview HD reception is perfect.
