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).

BBC are 250W and YCR is 625W to the best of my knowledge.

Phil, Briantist: The BBC radio transmitters website BBC - Help receiving TV and radio - Transmitters says 250W. The Ofcom sheet indicates 125W vertical polarization, 125W horizontal polarization. This appears to be consistent: the BBC site adds up the horizontal and vertical polarization.

Likewise Yorkshire Coast Radio is 125W HP, 500W VP.

Typical portable receivers will get some contribution from both polarizations. Traditionally, rooftop FM aerials were HP, because that's what the BBC initially used, but in-car works much better with VP so they eventually switched to mixed polarization.

Mike Dimmick: Thanks. I will, shortly, change the import so you can see details of both the horizontal and vertical component.

I was primarily interested in the coverage area, and it makes no sense to total the horizontal and vertical for that, so I have taken the maximum value of the two as a receiver at position 'n' will receive either the horizontal or vertical signal, or a proportion of both.

You would have to two aerials, one positioned perfectly for horizontal and another for vertical and combine their signals, and this I can't see as a realistic.
