Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Fort Widley (Portsmouth, England) 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).

Derek Gee: The Trial Portsmouth multiplex has some coverage on the North of the Isle of Wight, see the coverage mas at Our Coverage Map . You'll need a radio that supports DAB+ in order to receive Radio Caroline (if you can already receive Jazz FM Stereo, Fun Kids UK and Union Jack then your radio is compatible).

Has the Fort Widley experimental multiplex stopped transmitting? I received it a few days ago, mpx # 7D. But now there is no trace. I'm only 6km (east) from the transmitter and have roof-top aerial.

Checked it on a Realtek RTL2832U/Rafael 820T2 device c/w QT-DAB for Linux. QT-DAB supports DAB+ has a shed-load of quite useful diagnostics and tweaks., including ability to vary RF gain and compensate for ppm frequency variations.

Still no whiff of a spectrum from the transmitter. Nothing. Zilch. Nada.
