Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Idle (Bradford, 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).

Idle DAB

There is something seriously wrong with single frequency networks.
I am only able to pick up the BBC National DAB from the Idle Transmitter indoors.
So BBC Radio 1 and BBC Asian Network are fine. What I can't listen to is D1 National and Yorkshire DAB Multiplexes.
So I can't listen to talkSport or Capital FM on DAB. The Transmitter is only a few miles away and the Power is in Kilowatts!
