This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Hannington (Hampshire, 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).

Louise West: Checking the BBC status report for DAB transmitters shows that the BBC national multiplex from the Crabwood Farm/Winchester transmitter is currently off air - since 05.31 today.

We cannot receive SmoothRadio or Heat on our Freeview TV anymore.

They are visible in the guide, but there seems to be no output.

Can anyone shed light on this ?

Thanks in advance.

This map is not up-to-date. It doesn't show D2 transmissions.

Andy Fraser: Hi Andy. The power of SDL from Hannington is 4.6 kilowatts (4600W), which is only 200 watts less than Digital One (D1), so you can assume that SDL's coverage area is very, very slightly less than that of Digital One, so why not ask someone who is in a greenish yellow area, such as Salisbury, Wilts, Oxford or somewhere in South London, what their Sound Digital reception is like? I'd choose Salisbury because places to the North and East of Hannington will probably pick up Sound Digital from transmitters nearer them! I'm sure that Briantist will get around to updating the web pages of DAB transmitters that transmit SDL eventually ! Give the poor man a break! Richard, Norwich.

Thanks for your reply Richard. I'm sorry, for sounding impatient. It was just that the previous comment on this page was Feb 2013, so it looked abandoned.

In Fleet I no longer receive a usable signal on Planet Rock since it moved off D1 (although I haven't listened to it much since it went mono).

It seems very difficult to actually find where the DAB signals are coming from. Basingstoke, Odiham and Hungry Hill are all shown as main transmitters and are nearer than Hannington, but I've no idea if any of them have D2 stations, or if I'm more likely to receive from any of them rather than Hannington.

Andy Fraser: Hi, again Andy. According to my reference sources other than UKFREE.TV, Basingstoke, Odiham and Hungry Hill don't transmit the D2 stations at the moment. It would be useful if you could give me either the name of the town where you are situated or at least the beginnings of your postcode. I will perfectly understand if you do not want to give me your full postcode, but just the start of it would be very helpful so that I can use my various sources to see if I can locate another relatively nearby transmitter that does carry D2 stations. I look forward to hearing from you again soon so that we can further develop strategies for you to be able to receive Planet Rock on Sound Digital at your location. I can be online on this site for a little while longer this evening to take your enquiries further with you. Get back to me soon if you can please. Richard, Norwich.

Andy Fraser: Hi Andy, Just realised you had already said you were in Fleet. According to the BBC reception website, you can also get DAB signals from one or more of: Membury, Berks or even Wrotham in Kent, both of which carry Sound digital stations on VHF Band III, Block 11A, otherwise known as Channel 11A, even though these transmitters could be further away than those you listed earlier. You should see if your DAB radio will do a manual tune to channel 11A. Make sure aerial is right up and radio is preferably on the first or a higher floor and near a window. I'm assuming you're not using a loft or outdoor aerial.. Hope this helps, Richard.
