My analogue and DAB radio transmitters at PGSTART50

Note: under development. To help you to work out which DAB, FM and AM radio stations you can get, we have just traced your location to all of the transmitters within hundreds of miles. We use groundwave for AM broadcasts. For those you have access to, only the ones sending a strong enough signal are shown. DAB radio stations are grouped before transmission into 'Muxes' (multiplexes) which then broadcast on one frequency. The radio stations you can get are listed below the map.

On the following map, yellow house shows where you are and all the possible DAB (white), FM (blue) and AM (green) transmitters: You can single-click on the mast locations to show their calculated coverage area. You can also use the buttons below the map to choose transmitter name with a colour-coded Mux.

More radio stations on digital TV

There are three other popular ways to receive radio broadcasts: using Freeview, using Sky or using Freesat. There are over 30 radio stations on Freeview, almost 60 on Sky and about 40 on Freesat. You will need an aerial and digital TV for Freeview, a satellite dish and decoder box for both Freesat and Sky. If you use a screen with these services you also need a TV Licence, which isn't required at all for DAB or FM. You can see a full list of the radio stations here: Showing the free channels on Radio stations on digital TV.

Coverage areas shown

Because analogue signals fade over distance (and over time on the AM band) the shown coverage areas are for optimal reception, including FM stereo. It is often (and sometime occasionally) possible to get more stations than listed on AM and FM, but with poorer quality.

Anne West: Check your signal strength - could be too high, but possibly more likely, too low, because your aerial system might have a fault.

Mr Michael D Archer:

I am confused by your query. DAB reception does not use, or should not, your TV aerial as DAB services ae=re on completely different frequencies. But are you meaning that reception of Radio services via Freeview is poor? I also wonder whether that particular radio service is carried on Freeview.

DAB not working too well this morning due to lift'.
I live near Stonehenge and can normally receive Gold' on the Berks and North Hants multiplex without issue but reception is currently almost impossible. SDL multiplex is a bit choppy' and bit error rates on national BBC multiplex are increased from zero to low 20s.
London 2' (12A) is receivable with some chop', London 1' and 3' stations are showing in the tuning list but don't connect, likewise with some Dutch stations. Stations on the Paris 2 multiplex (frequency 6A) are coming in loud and clear'.
I've had this happen with FM but this is the first time I've seen DAB do this.

I live in Hull, and for many years, DTV reception has been bad. REALLY bad. Analogue signals were perfect, but digital signals are often choppy and mostly broken. Any help? Wires seem to be fine.

I live in NE49 9LR. Haltwhistle has 3000 residents. We have no DAB reception at all.

What an outrage! I just bought a DA radio on the advice of the BBC radio trails and it won't gte a single station. This is 2018!!! What plans are there?

Thanks for any advice. I'm pretty mad at this.

My Mum lives in a nursing home in Kington, Herefordshire. Postal code HR5 3BA.

She loves classical music, and relies on the radio, as she's cognitively/physically disabled, and can't operate a CD player. She has terrible reception with regular radio, and terrible reception with DAB radio. I'm desperate to get her a DAB digital radio that would work. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I use a DAB radio and have an excellent reception on all stations, except for Radio Scotland. It has a very poor reception at times, I must admit it's not all of the time but when it is at it's poorest it's not worth while having Radio Scotland on.
