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 Fareham (Hampshire, England) mast?

Can you suggest how to convince the BBC that there is often a signal quality problem with its AM Radio 5 Live transmissions from the transmitter at Fareham Hampshire. I live probably about 4 miles from the site with an unobstructed view. The symptoms are distortion on the audio but the signal is constant. It seems to happen at random times not necessarily in the evening. I get the same problem on all my radios, portable, fixed to a main long wire aerial and if I am listening to my car radio driving in the area. I posted the problem to the BBC but all I got was instructions on trying aerials which I have already done, but the problem is there on all radios.
I would like to use DAB but the signal is so poor here (post code PO13 0QS) that I cannot use a portable radio downstairs and it is only just bearable upstairs.

Interesting to read this Mr Mel Watch.

I've been having trouble with AM Radio 5 Live from Fareham for about two weeks now. Signal volume is well down with distortion for me (I live in Eastleigh.) It used to blast through.

I thought my lovely old Roberts Radio was on the way out but now I know it isn't.

How one notifies the BBC Engineering people about such things is beyond me. How did you do it as I'll moan at them as well.

I've given up on Dab. I've tried three brands of Dab sets in my house and can't get a signal in my kitchen or living room which is where I do my radio listening.

I have still not found a way of contacting the BBC and now the transmitter modulation has dropped considerably.

Mel Watch,

You would have to get in touch with Arquiva.
I live 150 metres from the antenna array.
Arquiva are a very good company to talk to, they will check it out in no time and get back to you.

Kind regards,
