Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Mendip (Somerset, England) mast?

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).

it. Regards A Cresswell

A Cresswell: The channels is on the D1 multiplex which has quite good coverage. You didn't supply your postcode or location so I can't really say specifiably.

I live in BA8 0JX and until this week I have been able to get good reception of LBC. It just suddenly disappeared. At the same time the BBC stations also showed reduced signal, I guess due to the all day mists. It is clear again today and the BBC stations are back to their normal levels. I have tried a full retune of the radio but no change for LBC. The radio finds LBC during the search but come back with "not available". Has LBC stopped transmitting on the multiplex? I can only find reference to "station moved" on LBC website. I got the message earlier this week and retuned as intructed, it then worked OK but soon vanished.

My dab isn't working at all for the last couple of days, bs23 3ql, Weston super mare, started with the voice telling me to retune, since then I've not been able to tune into a sausage! This is really frustrating now

Why are all the digital TV channels generally unwatchable on a Sunday morning after 9 am

I live in Burnham-on-Sea. I do not seem to be able to tune to Gold on DAB. Is it not broadcast in our area?

V.R. Huxtable: Gold is currently only on DAB in London, East Midlands & Yorkshire.

It's also on Sky, Virgin, Freesat & online.
