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 am a Radio two listener. Recently the signal appears to have become very poor. This is the case on all of my house radios. Is there a reason for this please. Mel Ouseley. My location is Fishguard Pembrokeshire.

Mel Ouseley: Hi Mel. I shall do a little investigating and then report back to you. If your house radios all use FM for Radio 2, you will be getting your signal from the Blaen Plwyf transmitter on a frequency of 88.7 megahertz. There are no faults and there is no engineering work on this transmitter. Check that the telescopic aerial rod on the radio is fully pulled out, especially for Radio 2 and try putting it at a slanted angle. Put the radio as high up as possible and near a window. If there is a way of switching from stereo to mono, do that, because mono is easier to pick up when the signal is weaker. If any of your house radios are DAB radios (that stands for 'digital audio broadcasting'), then you get your signals from a number of different transmitters, including Blaen Plwyf, Fishguard and also possibly from Arfon ( but less likely from there). There is no engineering work going on, or any faults occurring on any of these. A DAB radio should have its aerial pulled up to a height of 33 centimetres (13 inches) and should point straight up ( i.e. vertical). As with an FM radio, put the radio as high up as possible and near a window. If you go to the room where your television is you can get Radio 2 out of your tv speakers if you switch your television channel to channel 702. You probably get
your tv signals from the Fishguard relay transmitter and sadly i have to tell you that works is being done on it today, so Radio 2 on Freevew television is not an option today, but usually it would be. Try my tips above for Radio 2 on FM or DAB radios! Hope what I've said will help, Richard, Norwich.
