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 Sutton Coldfield (Birmingham, England) mast?

Looking at the map of the Sutton Coldfield analague radio coverage area ( the geographical map is totally obscured by the coloured sectors showing the radiation area. Given the work that I know that you put into this site this seems like a small gripe, but thought you may like to know.

Bob Grainger: Thanks for pointing that out.

I've turned the opacity down, I think you can see better now.

Hi Brian,

What is broadcast from Sutton Coldfield that covers almost to Glasgow, into Dublin and right down to France?

Or is there an error in the map or am I reading it wrong?

pw69: The coverage map assumes that the terrain is entirely flat, which is why it is a perfect circle.
