This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Hastings (East Sussex, 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).

every evening our digital picture breaks up for itv networks. We live in a block of flats in collington avenue bexhill-on-sea east sussex tn39 3ne. could this be anything to do with Hastings Direct who 100 yards away from us. We have recently had a new digital areial so it is not that.BBC flickers sometimes and is watchable

buontempo: Probably - Conquest House will be the location for the new Bexhill relay which comes into operational at DSO in your area (May next year). This will be a relay of Heathfield (rather than Hastings), but I don't think it is transmitting at the moment.
The interference you describe sounds more like taxi services - I've no idea what's on the top of Conquest House, but PMR transmitters (used by taxi companies on tall buildings) do cause interference, and perhaps a new antenna has been put up there.
Your block of flats may need an interference filter adding to the communal system to cure the problem.

That sounds as if you have some local interference and not the transmitter.

Sue t: Look at the top of the page for that transmitter (this is the DAB radio page) - there is no Com7, so that channel isn't possible. Even if it was, your would need an HD tuner as well.

I have retuned all my DAB radios but none of them are showing the new Scala radio in the listings. Scala radio say they should be available nationally. I am in TN35 4LG area

ECC: The SDL National mux (which carries Scala) is predicted to be available at your postcode. Do you have Absolute 80s and Planet Rock in your station list (both are also on SDL)?
