This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Colchester (Essex, 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).

For the last week, DAB in my car on my pure highway has been awful in Essex, and has gone off completely today, is this a network issue or from my end?

The signal has been awful for the last week, in the Colchester area. Is there a problem with the transmitter or have i a problem with the radio in my car?

Colchester CO4 ..have had reception problems for a few days on all HD channels and also SD ones for ITV, C4 etc while SD BBC channels are fine. All seems well for about 10 mins and then 'no signal'. Have tried four TVs all the same....

john craig: It's quite likely being caused by the hot weather. Do not attempt to retune.
