This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Guildford (Surrey, England) 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).

That's odd, have you got anything now? The BBC, who are normally good at reporting any problems affecting their multiplexes, haven't listed any faults for Guildford (the transmitter is on the Hogs Back) or Midhurst.
All the commercial multiplexes are on the same Guildford transmitter, supposedly including London 1,2,&3 multiplexes, but trying to find any fault reports for them is needle in a haystack stuff.

Try another radio, maybe a neighbour if need be.
If you are still having a problem, post back and we'll see if there's any further news.
