This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Black Hill (North Lanarkshire, Scotland) transmitter.

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).

My query relates to coverage/ power of the bbc black hill tv transmitter. I cannot get a signal on any bbc station using an internal powered aerial although I have no difficulty picking up stv, the local itv station. The itv transmitter is located at the same location. I would like to know who to direct my complaint to as it is not obvious from checking bbc websites.

John McGarrity:

None of the UK Freeview transmitters are operated by the BBC or ITV. They are operated by Arqiva, who can be contacted via their website at…us/.

All the programmes are transmitted as groups in what are known as multiplexes. If you are receiving any one of the programmes in a multiplex then you should have all of them.

You have not given a full post code so we cannot look up the expected reception conditions at your location. I suggest you first look at the Digital UK Coverage Checker, put in your full post code and select the Detailed view. That will show you the expected reception at that post code.
