The coloured area on the map represents the locations where DAB reception should be possible in a car, or using a DAB receiver where the aerial is above ground-floor level. Those areas showing shaded with bright colour (one colour per DAB frequency) indoor domestic reception even at ground level should be highly reliable: please remember that the receiver aerial position and how fast you are moving can affect reception reliability.

Today, 1 Nov 2016 the signal on 12B BBC National DAB is giving me a full strength reception on my DAB radios here in Bude, Cornwall.

Why is this and will D1 National on 11D also have its signal boosted?

Cheers Fred

Fred : Bude is on the list of planned transmitters for both the BBC National and Cornwall multiplexes so it may be that the transmitter has just been activated. Unfortunately there isn't a publicly available list of future transmitters for the D1 National mux.

StevensOnln1: Cheers, I know Bude had a mast planned for installation in late 2016, but later I found an updated document where Bude had been removed so I thought it had been cancelled.

Maybe it was because work had started?

Cannot recall the second document I found. :-(

Anyway here's hoping it all goes ahead, pity there isn't any updates from NOW or D1 National.

I'll update this as things progress.

fred: Still getting a great signal in Bude on the BBC National DAB multiplex 12B.

On the downside the D1 National DAB multiplex on 11D seems to have lost signal strength to a half of what it was, and I believe this is from the Caradon Hill mast.

Any number of searches has failed to reveal when Digital 1 is going live on the Bude mast. Can anyone help on this? Also will the Cornwall DAB multiplex 11B be implemented on the mast?

It would be nice if D2 National DAB was implemented as well to get Share Radio, Talksport2 and Talkradio, but this seems very unlikely even in the distant future.

I asked the BBC about theier new mast in Bude and received this reply:

I forwarded your correspondence to our investigation team who have asked that I pass on the following:

"I am glad to hear that you are enjoying the improved DAB signal. I can confirm that the BBC DAB at Bude Stucley Road was switched on at 15:45 on 31/10/16. This site is dual telemetered (using VSAT and 3G until the BT circuit is in place). Only BBC services are available at present so you won't be able to get Now or D1 National."

Kind regards
