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

Hi. I listen to dab radio in my car. Very recently cannot lock into Swindon dab radio, only connects to oxford. The oxford transmission which is hit and miss.

Can you let me know why this has started to happen please?

Regards. Andy

Local DAB in Blunsden is off air right now sounds like a major outage, been off since I woke up at around 7.30 today. They have had issues recently when it popping on and off. Seems like Global need some open wallet surgery to buy a new TX.

Seems like BBC Wiltshire are unaware of this, why do they not listen to DAB it is the future, when it's works.

In the last few days/week I have lost dab reception, are there any issues at the moment?

Hi, I've lost Kiss FM on both home DAB radios recently, any ideas? Should AT800 be liable as they've only just resolved by Freeview TV reception issue with an in line filter that the close by Vodafone 4G mast was Interfering.

Jerry: See:

Ofcom | Radio Broadcast Update January 2015

Removal of Kiss from Swindon and West Wiltshire multiplex.

This is probably because it's available on the D1 National commercial multiplex. Can you receive it?
