Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Durris (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) 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).

Briantist: These DAB coverage maps are an impressive addition to the site.

I live in Aberdeen, well inside the D1 National coverage area surrounded by the thick line on the above map. I don't have a DAB radio however the Digital One postcode checker (http://www.ukdigitalradio.com/coverage/postcodesearch/) says that I cannot receive their DAB stations at my location.

I don't know how reliable this postcode checker is but I thought I'd point it out in case a few refinements to the coverage maps are required. It is difficult though considering all the variables that have an impact on the coverage area.

Will: As it says above "the coverage area shown is the official radiation pattern, the actual terrain and receiver aerial position will affect reception reliability".

Trying to do pixel-based DAB reception prediction would overload the server capacity.

I have enjoyed good DAB reception for a few years, in Edzell, Angus, but just recently, the signal has vanished. No new buildings or obstructions that I am aware of. Any recent changes at Durris transmitter ? Thanks

Since Thursday 18th June, the reception of National 1 DAB stations has been appalling in the Aberdeen area. There have always been a few dropout points to the north and north east of the city (Oldmeldrum-Ellon areas), but I never really had any problems when driving in to Dyce. Now, I cannot even get out of my driveway before I have lost the signal! Something happened I'm guessing after the maintenance on the 17th June. Anyone know when we will get a decent signal back again?

I only seem to have this reception problem with Smooth Radio, Reception was really good apart from a few dropout points up untill Friday 19th June. (Just put it back the way it was untill you can install a proved update)
