This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Dumfries South (Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland) 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).

Yes, the BBC have limited DAB coverage in Galloway with transmitters at Dumfries South, Thornhill, Barskeoch Hill (to the east of Castle Douglas), Langholm, and Moffat North
AFAIK there is no Commercial DAB coverage in the area.

You must be unlucky not to get FM (you haven't given a postcode for your locale) there are BBC transmitters at Girvan, Sandale (sw of Carlise), Kirkconnell, Darvel and Black Hill which give coverage in various parts of Galloway.

Thanks. Looks like Internet is the way to go. DG7 3UP, if you are interested. The FM thing is quite local I think, and a real pain!

The BBC predictor says you are unlikely to get a reliable FM or DAB service !

You do know you can get the BBC Radio services on Freeview in the range LCNs 700-735.
The main services are on 700-710. Which channel above 710 is used for your local radio service is dependent on which services are available in your area.
