Durris (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) DAB transmitter
Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Durris (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) mast?
No problems on any service.
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.

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?
