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 Kingsbridge (Devon, England) mast?

No problems on any service. BBC

Clive Thompson:

Whilst you've posted on the Analogue (FM) page rather than the Kingsbridge (Devon, England) DAB transmitter | free and easy page, it's not showing any problems with DAB transmissions, nor are the BBC reporting any problems.
There are 2 DAB multiplexes broadcast from the Kingsbridge transmitter -
The BBC National DAB on mux 12B, 225.648MHz and
A local Plymouth one on mux 12D, 229.072MHz
BBC Radio Devon is transmitted on 12D, not the BBC National mux on 12B

Your main signals for BBC National stations on FM will come from the North Hessary Tor transmitter (which has engineering work at present with "slightly reduced power" according to the BBC) -
BBC Radio 1 97.7MHz, BBC Radio 2 88.1MHz, BBC Radio 3 90.3MHz, BBC Radio 4 92.5MHz.

Whereas you have two choices for BBC Radio Devon -
North Hessary Tor 103.4MHz or Beacon Hill on 104.3MHz

You should have good reception from all those transmitters, but a full postcode would be needed to see what the BBC are predicting for your precise location. For DAB (and FM to a slightly lesser degree), if you are using an internal aerial, try moving the radio or aerial to a different position. Thick walls, metal objects (fridges, boilers etc) and some other objects can make a big difference to quality of reception.
