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).

Why am I unable to get Radio 5 Live on my Dab radio since a power cut this morning? I live in the Darvel area.
I have tried to reboot my DAB radio.
Thank you in anticipation.

Donald Tyne: I've just check the BBC Reception website for your area and it says that the DAB BBC transmitter and BBC national FM services at Darvel went off this morning at 08:17. There is no reason given.

Did this coincide with the power failure in the area? If so, I wonder if that is the reason.

All Radio services appear to be lost from Darvel both FM & DAB. This seems to have been since the 3rd. Freeview is OK from the same site.
Seems odd that no announcements have been made.
