Why is the map showing coverage of DAB in Cornwall so inacurate. Living in Penzance I cannot get reliable reception in the house and in fact returned a radio because it would not receive some channels constantly. When driving the car to london there are more holes in reception than reception. When are we liable to get a fully receivable service to replace AM/FM when they remove it

What is somewhat confusing about this DAB page is that it's titled "Details of 11B Cornwall DAB multiplex" but the default map display is just for the Redruth transmitter (with or without Pro Mode enabled). You need to click on Caradon Hill just below the map to see that coverage. Whilst the mast locator has 11B next to it's name, the page has a 12B (the main BBC multiplex) button on the top left - I'm not sure if the coverage is actually the same, although both multiplexes (and also the D1 - 11D & SDL - 11A multiplexes) are transmitted from both transmitters.
Arqiva's map at….pdf
does seem to fit in with the coverage of 11B shown here.
