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).

This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Cliff Hill (Highland, Scotland) transmitter.

A useful website, but in mountainous terrain the maps aren't at all realistic. The map does not show the official coverage at all, just a radius based on power in free air.
This transmitter covers only the coastal areas around Loch Ewe and Loch Maree, and provides no coverage whatever in Gairloch or Torridon to the south, nor the Loch Brooms and Coigach to the north, all of which the map suggests are fully covered.

A far more accurate map is available on Ocom's website at….pdf

Alex Gray: How many times are you going to post the same comment. As it says CLEARLY at the top of the page "shown is the official radiation pattern: the terrain and receiver aerial position have to be taken into account for actual reception".
