Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Huntshaw Cross (Devon, England) mast?

HUNTSHAW CROSS transmitter - Freeview: HD Digital TV Weak Signal from 04:13 today to 21:52 today. 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).

I used to get good DAB reception for Radio 4, 5 and 4 Extra but recently I am getting a weak signal with lots of crackling. I see that these stations are being broadcast from Huntshaw Cross at 2500W and other stations at 4000W. When will the signal strenth be increased for the stations on 2500W?
Thanks, Hugh.

Hugh Blackburne: I imagine that the likely answer is that the "other" multiplexes are on higher power owing to them not having as many other transmitters around Huntshaw Cross.

That is, the BBC (spends more money) on installing more transmitters and this may explain why the power of the Huntshaw Cross transmitter isn't as great as the others.
