The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Blaen Plwyf (Ceredigion, Wales) 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).

There is (as you know) a DAB transmitter for Ceredigion at Blaenplwyf. I live at SY24 5BT (Llandre) and I have a new top-of-the-range receiver which picks up a good FM signal from Blaenplwyf on an indoor aerial. However, on DAB even the stronger signal of the BBC's DAB stations is unstable and constantly subject to intolerable interference. I had been warned that the British DAB standard was a very compromised and unsatisfactory broadcasting medium when I bought this radio. However, my radio is fortunately also capable of picking up the allegedly improved DAB+ signal. I must ask when this promised usable form of digital radio broadcasting will replace the utterly inadequate DAB signal broadcast at present? Frankly, the current DAB service must be regarded as a ridiculous waste of time and money, and is in urgent need of replacement.

why is commercial DAB reception so poor, when all BBC DAB channels are good? I live a few miles east of Blaenplwyf, at 300 metres altitude (virtually line of sight), yet I cannot listen to LBC without juggling the receiver position to a ridiculous extent.
I have noticed this problem in other parts of the UK, but the commercial DAB signal in this area is much much worse.
