Caroline Community Radio

Caroline Community Radio is a public analogue 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).

I have experienced great difficulty tuning in to my normal radio 2 programmes since Caroline test transmissions commenced. This morning at FM 89 I could only receive Caroline test transmission
ofFM 94.7.I have been waiting for things to adjust but this is not apparent.My radio in the bedroom is a 2 year old Roberts and I livenear the church at the top of Maldon Hill. I have no objection to Caroline but the signal is causing disruption and I hope the engineers can help out .
Please advise me as to what is happening.

David Whitehead:

I can't find any information as to the exact location of their FM mast. I don't believe this map here is accurate (it isn't on a number of radio transmitter maps). Do you know how far you are from the mast?
Nor can I find Malden Hill on a map, you might need to be more specific.

It's sounding like a problem of breakthrough on your radio because the signal is strong, I'm surprised a Roberts radio is having that problem. You could try contacting their support for advice but they don't seem to have a phone number or email address (not helpful IMHO) you have to use their daft webform -

You could try emailing Caroline's engineer I think it's
