Map of all DAB transmitters

You can click on a transmitter group symbol to see all the masts in that county or area, or click on a single transmitter to see the coverage area. Due to the large number of radio transmitters, many have been grouped into counties or administrative areas for ease of viewing.

What do the map symbols mean?

I've now been living in Annan (yes it is in Scotland) for 15 months and till today have no idea why Radio BBC Scotland Digital is not available on DAB. We do get all the English programmes, and even the Asian one. Whilst on nightshift I need to listen to the football over my mobile phone. All in all the stations available are very poor. When is this going to be sorted?

David Finnie: BBC Radio Scotland is broadcast on local commercial multiplexs which don't currently cover all areas of Scotland. The BBC national stations are broadcast on the BBC's own multiplex which is identical across the whole of the UK and is unable to carry stations such as BBC Radio Scotland (unless another station was removed or reduced in quality across the whole UK). Plans haven't been announced yet to expand coverage of BBC Radio Scotland on DAB but are likely to be announced once a date is set for a digital radio switchover.

The international agreement allocating the bands used for TV services allowed Australia and a number of oriental and African countries to use Band 2 for TV services. In Europe, including the UK, Band 2 was allocated for FM radio services whilst Bands 1, 3, 4 and 5 were for TV broadcasts. In the US, they had a slightly different allocation of bands.

There is a lot of information about this on several websites.

David Finnie: I live outside Thornhill village in Dumfries & Galloway (D&G) and currently rely on WiFi digital radio sets for digital reception on commercial radio & BBC Radio Scotland.
Local DAB including BBC Radio Scotland's regional opt-out for D&G news will not become a reality until after a digital radio switchover announcement in 2018/19, giving listeners a two year notice to convert! According to the current OFCOM plan, a multiplex identified as 'Glasgow South' will then bring signal coverage for local DAB throughout most of D&G which may require up to eight transmitter relay sites! Glasgow North on the other hand will be a merged Ayrshire & Glasgow multiplex for local DAB..
Personally, I am not expecting local DAB in D&G until 2020/21!!
