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 Oban (Argyll and Bute, Scotland) mast?

No problems on any service. BBC

dear sir ,oban fm radio ,broadcasting from pulpit hill has been affected for a year now by interference to the broadcast signal so that one channel of the stereo is missing and so stereo music is broadcast in a lopsided manner and the full musicalpicture is not presented properly.tis coincides with the digital switchover or hassomething to do with a new mobile phone mast that was installed atthe mast maybe around the same a presenter on oban fm this has been extremely bothersome.i dont really know what is causing the problem but as a fully licensedc legitimate radio station we and the listeners deserve better.surely something must be done to rectify this fault,thank you

gordon macintyre: The most likley explanation for your problem is that there is a connection problem to your FM receiver.

FM is broadcast as "joint stereo", which basically means it is first a "mono" service and then has a separate "left and right plus carrier" added to it.

To test to see if the problem is reception or connection one, select "mono" on your receiver. If that makes the output come out of both speakers equally then there is a problem with the transmission.
