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 Langley Mill (Staffordshire, England) mast?

No problems on any service. BBC

AFAIK "Greatest Hits Radio" is the station broadcasting on 1152 from Langley Mill, at least that is still mentioned on their website!

Well further to my last - which is wrong - Greatest Hits Radio website for the West Midlands is out of date as they haven't removed the 1152kHz listing. OFCOM is also a useless site as I'd done a previous search and found nothing, but based on some further information I found, I eventually found that Bauer Radio which has been broadcasting "Absolute Classic Rock" on 1152 from Langley Mill have surrendered the licence, so yes, it's closed, all part of Bauer's cutbacks!

Jon collins: Most AM radio stations get relatively few listeners as the majority have switched to listening on DAB or online. AM transmitters are expensive to run and are becoming less commercially viable, hence why many AM stations have closed already and most will quite likely close over the next few years.

Absolute Classic Rock is available on DAB across Birmingham and most of the wider West Midlands region.

If you go to buy a DAB radio if you haven't got one, make sure it is DAB+ (DAB plus), as a lot of stations are now moving to this type of transmission. There are still too many radios which are only plain DAB being sold, especially in large superstores!
