Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Coker Hill (Somerset, 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).

Does anybody know if the new local Somerset mux is due to launch on coker hill or will it just be mendip?

Also will digital 1 ever broadcast from this site as mendip and Stockland hill give very poor reception.

Tim: The coverage map on the Muxco Somerset web page, which is a few years old now, shows transmitters at Mendip, Coker Hill, Taunton and Hutton. Whether all transmitters will be on air from launch later this Summer is not clear, but will be dependant in part on whether BT lines are in place to provide feeds from the services which are to be carried on the mux. Details of these services are expected soon. Digital One have not released details of which sites may be included in any plans to improve coverage, Ofcom only require that in the event of an FM switch-off, areas should be served by D1on DAB if they currently enjoy robust FM reception on Classic FM, this requirement being within intended coverage areas, so not necessarily including long distance listeners half way up a mountain!

Sadly for the Yeovil area, Coker Hill will not launch in September....... just Mendip, Taunton, and Hutton.

After retune in Scottish Borders a new aerial had to be fitted. Location is Duns, after aerial was fitted all channels from Selkirk are being received plus channels 26, 28 and 29 from Caldbeck. Also all channels from Chatton are being received. A mast head amplifier is fitted. No co channel interference is being experienced.
