This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Dolgellau (Gwynedd, Wales) 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).

BBC Radio 2 and Radio 3 on FM in Dolgellau has very bad crackling and interference.

Radio 1, Radio 4 and Radio Cymru are perfectly fine.

I have tried three different radio's and they are all operating the same way crackling and hissing just on Radio 2 and Radio 3.

Today 12/3/2015 this afternoon Radio 2 was just impossible to listen to.

I listen to Radio 2 most days and I know the reception is far better than it is at the moment.

Not sure how to report this problem so I'll start on this website :-)

I have had intermittent problems recently with receiving all the channels on the PSB2 D3+4 C55 frequency in Dolgellau.
These are ITV, S4C, Ch5, ITV2, Ch4, Ch4+1, More4, Film4, ITV4 and ITV+1.
All the other channels are fine so I can only guess that there is an intermittent fault with the transmitter and not a fault with my TV or aerial ?

Just wondered how to report the problem and if anyone else has had similar issues ?

G Edwards: The Dolgellau transmitter is group C/D however if you are fitting a new aerial a wideband aerial such a a log periodic type will be more future proof (most of the group C/D band will be handed over for mobile broadband use in 2020 requiring transmitters to move to lower frequencies which won't get such good receiption on group C/D aerials and will therefore require replacement of most group C/D aerials in the next few years).

Hi I'm having problems with poor quality on all channels.
In Dolgellau.
Was perfect in January, the last time I was here.
Are there any current issues with the transmitter?
Signal strength typically 70%
Signal quality low about 10 to 30%.
Any chance of an email reply,?
Thank you
