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).

This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Llandinam (Powys, Wales) transmitter.

I live in the Llandinam area and get my reception from the Newtown(Powys) transmitter. I have relations living in the Aberystwyth area who receive loads more channels than I do. I think that in this area we are missing more than one MUX. My question is this: why should I be paying the same licence fee as those people receiving loads more channel? are there any plans to include the missing MUX in the future?

Dave Jones: There are two types of terrestrial broadcaster: Public Service Broadcaster and Commercial.

The channels that are not broadcast from Newtown transmitter are the Commercial ones. The Public Service Broadcasters are BBC, ITV1, Channel 4 and Channel 5.

The Commercial broadcasters choose where to broadcast from. They broadcast from 80 of the largest transmitters (by population) and achieve a 90% coverage. In order for them to transmit from the 1000 or so small relay transmitters such as Newtown would roughly double their cost of transmission whilst only adding 8.5% of the population to their potential viewer base. They were asked if they wished to increase their coverage and they declined.

That is capitalism for you; if it isn't likely to produce a return it won't get done. For a more in depth explanation, see Will there ever be more services on the Freeview Light transmitters? | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice


In answer to your question, the law requires payment of the Licence Fee in order to watch television broadcasts. It does not guarantee reception of any television signals by any method. The Licence Fee goes to the BBC and as the BBC is a Public Service Broadcaster, it is available to you.

So why should the BBC receive less from you because the Commercial operators do not wish to transmit from your transmitter? Why should those who the Commercial operators broadcast to have to pay more to the BBC?
