Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Alexandra Palace (Greater London, England) mast?

No problems on any service. BBC

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).

There have been continuing problems with the Alexandra Palace DAB transmitter, with weak signal performance affecting the BBC DAB multiplex for at least the last week.

Does anyone know what's going on and when this is likely to be resolved? It's been ruining the listening of a lot of BBC listeners in London.

Frank Chersky: Can you tell me your location (ie, postcode) and the type of receiver you are using?

Sorry for the delay in responding, as I've been away.

I'm located in Hornsey, North London (N8), fairly close to Alexandra Palace itself. I use a stand-alone Pure PocketDAB 1500, a model I've used for a number of years without any problems.

Frank Chersky: with our aerial pointing to Oxford we used to get channel 'Yesterday'. Since change over it has gone pixated. We now have reception by dish from Alexandra Palace but no Yesterday channel.

R Coulter: Alexandra Palace does not (at the moment) broadcast digital terrestrial TV ("Freeview"). It will do so when the London region switches to digital next June.

Are you confusing this with Crystal Palace which is the main London transmitter which does broadcast Freeview now?

In any case, you will not be using a dish, you will be using an aerial. A dish is used for satellite services.

Why have you stopped using the Oxford transmitter?
