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 Littlebourne (Kent, England) mast?

No problems on any service. BBC

I am hearing radio programmes during the night/morning from about 1a.m. until 6a.m. This is when I am in bed, with no radio or tv turned on. Can this be coming from the transmitter somehow ? I am at a loss to know where it comes from.This does not happen during the day.
Would be grateful for your help, as am getting very little sleep.
I live in Littlebourne near the transmitter.
Thanks.

Val Allen:

At a guess, as it's analogue signals from this transmitter, it's being picked up by some of the wiring in your house. There maybe a bad connection somewhere which acts a bit like the "detector" did in old crystal radio sets (a bad joint can act like a diode).

Can you narrow down where the sound is coming from - is it coming from electrical mains wiring, or is it coming from cabling connected to TVs, radio sets & etc?

If it's coming from mains wiring, for example at a socket outlet it could be that if power is being used in the day the connection doesn't behave in the same way.

Hi Chris SE

Thank you for your response...it is only audible on a wall beside my bed , which has a plug beside it (for my light)not anywhere else in the house.
Guess an electrician is a possibility to check on any fault with that.

Thanks again.

Yes, that's what I would suggest if its coming from a socket where you have a plug. Check the connections in the plug itself if you are confident, get the electrician to check the connections to the socket. Loose or corroded connections are the usual culprits.
