This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Kilvey Hill (Swansea, Wales) transmitter.

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).

Very weak in Ammanford infact DAB Kilvey Hill only works outside for me anyway. Carmel dosen't carry 11A. Carmel obviously works fine But Kilvey Hill has more. Wish they boost the signal on certain frequency eg 11A.

John :

Unfortunately the commercial SDL multiplex doesn't have anything like the coverage of the commercial D1 multiplex. The BBC National multiplex is of course the most widespread but even that is patchy in many parts of Wales.
Kilvey Hill is one of the few transmitters in South and West Wales that has SDL, the other two being Wenvoe and Eglwysilan.
In the current economic climate and the general situation with commercial advertising I wouldn't hold out hope for any additional transmitters in the near future.
