BBC Wiltshire

BBC Wiltshire is a public digital radio station radio. UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

R Fulford: Good Morning Mr Fulford. Whilst there is a local DAB multiplex operator for Swindon and West Wiltshire, which is Now Digital Ltd, their published coverage area appears to stop short of Salisbury. The West Wilts transmitters are at Naish Hill and Crockerton. Whilst Crockerton is your nearest LOCAL DAB transmitter, it only has a power of 500 watts on VHF Band III Block (channel) 10D, and is designed to serve Warminster. The Salisbury DAB transmitter sadly does not yet transmit a LOCAL DAB multiplex, only transmitting BBC National DAB stations and Digital One National stations. If I were you, I would try doing a manual tune and try to get channel 10 D, which has a frequency of 215.072 MHz, which is the frequency of Crockerton, just to see if your DAB receiver can pick it up outside the published service area. I would also contact Now Digital Ltd, to see if they have any plans to extend their Swindon and West Wilts service to South Wilts, incuding Salisbury. Unfortunately I've been unable to find contact details for Now Digital Ltd. Iit is suggested that you contact as an alternative. Hope this helps. Richard, Norwich, 15 June, 10:00.

Hi, My house is in Devizes, on flat ground and I generally have no problems with TV or mobile signals to the house. I have a DAB bedside radio. The reception is pretty poor for Wiltshire Radio but it will pick it up if the built in wire aerial is in a certain position. My problem is that occasionally the radio almost explodes with a sudden noise, then crackles until I turn it off. This is usually at night or very early in the morning. FM reception is fine. It makes one wonder what the point is of spending the extra money on a DAB radio when it the performance is not even as good as the FM it is replacing.
Can anyone make a suggestion? I am afraid the speakers will pop when the 'explosion' is so loud.
