The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Lancaster (Lancashire, England) 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.

Real Radio (not XS) seems to have stopped transmitting from here today. Gone from both my main radio and my portable DAB one. Shame really, don't know if it's moving signal or something

Briantist: So it will likely move to the new local DAB multiplexes instead? Also, why only Real, every other station on 12C is still running fine

Kieron Quinn: It doesn't look like Real Radio is on any local radio multiplex, at least yet.

We have lost our DAB radio BBC National DAB service since at least 09/01/2015. D1 National is working OK.
As we are in Overton near Lancaster I assume that is our transmitter. Can anyone please help?

Freeview TV reception near Caton, just outside Lancaster, is unwatchable on many channels, especially BBC channels, most of the time and has been like this for many weeks now.

There's been a dead patch in the DAB signal on the commercial D1 mux between Kendal and Lancaster, starting just outside of a couple miles range of each transmitter. It started from the last major storm in October upto the middle of last week (now resolved). I reported it to DigitalOne 10 days ago and they responded which I heard was an issue for freeview which I've not experiences plus the BBC DAB mux was ok. Could high pressure cause DAB signal issues for 3 weeks?

"Unfortunately, there have been some unusual atmospheric conditions due to the weather and the high pressure was causing problems with both TV and radio reception in your area."

Mike: It's down to the station owners as to what level of coverage they are prepared to pay for and what spare capacity is available. Boom and Talk Radio are both on the SDL National multiplex which is broadcast from far fewer transmitters than the more expensive D1 National multiplex. Boom are a small independent station who don't have the financial backing of one of the big media groups and are unlikely to increase their coverage any time soon.
