Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Icomb Hill (Gloucestershire, England) mast?

No problems on any service. 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 am unable to receive programmes on channels 3 4 and 5 and ITV freeview , over the last two days, and all I get is a programme scrambled followed by a message no signal. Can you advise whether this is due to transmitter problems and not my set. Thank you

Mr Harry Blake: You havn't given a postcode, so we have no idea what your signal should be like. However, look at the rest of the questions over the last two days - complaining about much the same thing, which is likely due to a high pressure system 'bending' the TV signals, hence problems with reception. The weather should go back to normal fairly soon.

You can check the status of the transmitter yourself on this site, and although there is sometimes a bit of a lag in information, usually its accurate. Biggest reason why your getting 'no signal' (when its not the odd high pressure system) is that there is something wrong with your system, and the TV is getting either no or very little signal. If the problem persists, check your system.

rui: There are no Irish radio stations on DAB in the UK. If you mean UCB 1 or UCB 2 then chances are you're in an area where these stations aren't broadcast, or only have a weak signal. If you provide a full postcode then we can check.

THAT DARNED RELAY STATION (Icomb Hill) HAS GONE FUNNY AGAIN. WHY CAN WE NOT GET A RELIABLE RECEPTION. The old analoge had less channels but we could watch it.

Linda Powell: There is only one other person posting about the Icomb Hill transmitter, whereas if the transmitter was at fault there would be far more people complaining, suggesting that the fault is more likely to be something at your end. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Please provide a full postcode so that we can see your predicted coverage and where you are in relation to the transmitter etc.
