My analogue and DAB radio transmitters at PGSTART60

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.

I cannot receive a decent FM signal (104.40) for Radio Norfolk on a portable radio in the house apart from my FM tuner with a roof aerial. Radio Norfolk advertises it's various frequencies throughout the County including DAB but is does not reach to West Norfolk. I can receive the national stations on DAB on a portable radio. Is it likely that Radio Norfolk will be broadcast on DAB in West Norfolk or shall we remain 2nd class citizens?

FM and DAB signal strength in Warrington seems to be reduced recently and I now struggle to get most DAB and FM stations in my car.

Anybody know why this is ?

Rae Steward: Why not retune to AM band, 873 kilohertz from the West Lynn transmitter, whose coverage area includes Hunstanton and some other places even to the East of you, as far as Fakenham?

I live in Bracknell and have just moved over to listening to Virgin Radio on DAB, previously a radio 2 listener. I notice that Virgin Radio is not currently broadcast from the Coppid Beech relay in Bracknell and there are a few dead spots especially when you drive past the Coppid Beech transmitter you lose Virgin Radio for some distance.

Are they any plans for Virgin Radio to come to one of the Coppid Beech multiplexers?

Paul Westwell: Virgin Radio is broadcast on the SDL National multiplex which was expanded to 19 new transmitters last year. There has been no announcement of any further planned new transmitters since then.

Hi everyone,

Is something going on with FM? Is the signal getting weaker? I've noticed this on the car and on 2 new radios in the house. The living room has always been bad and I've had to use a loft mounted aerial but the bedroom was always OK but I have now had to connect the radio to the loft aerial to get a decent signal. Also noticed that reception in the garden has been getting steadily worse. Post Code is LE10 0NS
