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).

Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Chard (Somerset, England) mast?

No problems on any service. BBC

I live within 3 miles of the chard fm transmitter ,infact I can see it from my top windows just about.
For the best reception on Radio BBC do I need to mount my aerial vertical or horizontal ?
(It just happens that i notice Vertical in some places in UK)
