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 Wrekenton (Gateshead, England) mast?

I thought the Radio 4 transmitter at Wrekenton was 2kw in power output, but the info on this page says it is 500 watts. Which is correct please?

Bob: Re: R4 Wrekenton, this 603Khz AM transmitter is certainly rated as being 2Kw on my TX info sheet along with BBC Radio Newcastle on 1458Khz.
