The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Castle Vale (Birmingham, England) 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).

I would like to add Black Country Radio station on to my dab radios. I have tried to retune but without success. I live in Sutton Coldfield

Moira Ashford : Black Country Radio is broadcast in DAB+ on the Birmingham small scale multiplex, which has limited coverage from a single transmitter. If you can receive Big City Radio which broadcasts in standard DAB on the same mux then your radio is not compatible with DAB+. If you can't receive Big City Radio then you are probably outside of the coverage area.
