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

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.

p cocks: If you're getting BBC Radio Wales then it's definitely coming from a Welsh transmitter. Capital UK and Classic FM are national DAB stations broadcast from hundreds of transmitters all over the UK.

Clive Brook:

The BBC reported a fault the other day -
From 11:06am to 11:25am on 11th Jan 2023 BBC B HD Slightly reduced power due to a fault

That should obviously have been fixed, so unless it's re-occurred and not yet been reported, probably best just to check your coax plug connections etc. and that your aerial is still intact and pointing correctly.
