Stockton (Stockton-on-Tees, England) analogue radio transmitter
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).

The Absolute Radio TX or its feed appears to be faulty. I have no problem with Magic 1170, but yet the 1242 transmission is very intermittent on my portables and car radio. I do not have problem waith any other station so can only assume it is the transmitter

Colin Foxton: I had a similar problem with my local radio station in Wakefield, West Yorks. The DAB service of Ridings FM had a strong AC buzz on top of the audio. At first I thought the problem must be in my DAB radio, but as the problem was still there when I tried to listen to the station two weeks later I decided to email the station management to ask if there was a problem. I got a reply two hours later thanking me for bringing the matter to their attention, and to let me know that an engineer from the multiplex provider had been to the digital transmitter and fixed the fault. It's no wonder that digital radio isn't as popular by now as it should be, if even the station using the channel had no idea that their output was unlistenable for weeks, and had to be advised of the problem by a listener!
If I was you, Colin, I would get in touch with the station concerned, to ask if there's a problem with the transmitter. I realize that your problem is with an AM transmitter, and mine was digital, but you never know,there could be a fault at the transmitter that hasn't been detected by the radio station itself.
