Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Caradon Hill (Cornwall, England) mast?

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).

I don't know if the BBC have engineering staff of sick as they haven't reported the transmitter as being off-air. I hope it's back for you soon, as there doesn't seem to be any other information available!

For three days running we have lost our radio signal from around 10.15 to 16.00. My neighbour also has suffered from this problem.
Can you tell me what is wrong?
With regards

I can't find any reports of the transmitter being off-air, but as Freeview have it listed for Planned Engineering, then DAB signals could be affected depending on the work taking place. If it's operating on reduced power, it may seem off-air to you depending on your location, but as you haven't given a full postcode I can't even comment on that.

Dear Chris
It is the FM signal that I am not receiving. North Cornwall.

Peter:

Which stations and on what frequencies are you not receiving?

Caradon Hill only transmits 3 FM stations -
BBC Cornwall 95.2, Heart 105.1, Pirate FM 102.2 and I can't find any reported problems.

As you haven't given a full postcode or details of the stations you aren't getting, it's impossible to be certain what you are tuned to and not getting.

If it BBC Nationals (Radios1-4), they are transmitted from North Hessary Tor, also Penaligon Downs (nr. Bodmin), neither of which have any reported problems that I can find.
They're also transmitted from Redruth which has reported "slightly" reduced power from From 10:03am to 3:48pm on 30th Aug 2023 due to essential engineering. Frequencies are -
BBC Radio 1 99.3MHz, BBC Radio 2 89.7MHz, BBC Radio 3 91.9MHz, BBC Radio 4 94.1MHz, BBC Radio Cornwall 103.9MHz.

Just read the end of you message. It seems that it is the Redruth transmitter.
Thank you for the information. The radio signal just sort of fades out into white noise and comes back again around 15.30 to 14.00. I do not want my postcode displayed on a public domain. Sorry, lol!
