Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Heathfield (East Sussex, England) mast?

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).

It is most likely to be current weather conditions as I can't find any fault reports at present and "Tropospheric Ducting" which can cause interfering signals from distant transmitters in Europe or the UK to be more readily received. This is predicted to be quite variable over the next few days, and seems to be currently affecting the East and South-East.
Both Freeview and the BBC have current warnings about short term interference to reception.
Do NOT retune your TV.
