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).

Iain Davies: Fort William is the original VHF tv relay site. It is also not particularly high, which would explain why Cow Hill was chosen for UHF TV. Remember that it needed to be able to see a suitable parent mast (Torosay) for a feed as well as having a wider target area. The choice of Trislaig would have arisen as it is an existing mast in a higher location with suitable coverage area for a single FM transmitter. Another consideration for the choice of mast is sometimes whether there is room on the mast for the antenna or housing for the transmitter on the ground. Note how Kirk o'Shotts came to be used for the main BBC DAB transmitter in Central Scotland when TV and FM are all transmitted from Black Hill.
