Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Lickey Hills (Birmingham, 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).

Hello up until last week I could receive Radio WM on DAB on any of my three radios in the house. Now none of them have a signal, although the DAB radio in the car works fine. Any ideas please, I live near to the Lickey Hills, on the Birmingham Bromsgrove boarder.

Graham Glew: Kidderminster should be fairly well covered by the Birmingham local DAB multiplex which carries BBC Radio WM so it should appear in your station list if you rescan your radio. Try retuning with the radio in front of an east facing upstairs window if possible.
