Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Basingstoke (Hampshire, 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).

Hello Diane, I can't believe we are the only people in
Basingstoke who listen to Classic FM.
I have a DAB radio in the bathroom and Classic FM is fine
on that.
But when I try to Autotune the DAB in the bedroom it can't
find Classic FM.
It can see over 80 other stations, but not Classic FM.
I had a similar problem 4 years ago but can't find the
phone number I used to report it.
Hopefully someone responsible is monitoring this forum.

Since yesterday I am unable to get Capital Extra on my home stereo or today on my car stereo! Are there problems with the signal at the moment in Basingstoke?

To whom it may concern:
Thanks for sorting Classic FM in Basingstoke.

I've not had R4 on 94.50 for several days now. I've had to re-tune all my radios'presets to 93.80.
Perhaps someone with the necessary technical know-how can check that the transmitter is doing what it should be doing on all of the channels that it should be doing it!

A poor signal in parts of Basingstoke seems to be a problem that several have reported.
Can you be a bit more specific with exact location, eg. pick a business closest to where you have no signal and look up it's postcode.

We live South of Winchester but because of some trees next to my property our TV aeriel is pointed towards Basingstoke. eE are therefore on the edge of the coverage area. Normally just fine but as of yesterday 30th Mar signal has disapeared or downgraded. We cannot even get BBC1 although ITV is OK just.

Knowing that in this day of Covid-19 staff are probably on half the numbers - Is there anything wrong with the transmitter?

This is the DAB radio transmitter page, as you have made a post on the Hannington TV transmitter page, I'll reply there.
