BBC M25 DAB project - new transmitter for High Wycombe area on
Thursday 17 February 2011 7:48PM

"It seems that the BBC service is wiping out the smaller stations close to the transmitter!" - not that unusual - the launch of NOW Nottingham (12C) wiped out the BBC National DAB (12B) service here in Nottingham for a few years - it also marginally affected MXR Yorkshire (error free to 10% error but not audibly)).

1 was living less than 1km from the transmitter with clear line of site to it (I was able to get NOW Nottingham at maximum signal strength (and error free) with no aerial attached to my tuner, but I needed an amplified aerial for the BBC multiplex (the postcode checkers at the time showed I was only served by Digital 1, although I could get both Yorkshire multiplexes, NOW Leicester and BBC as I was at the top of a hill)
