Midhurst (West Sussex, England) DAB transmitter
Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Midhurst (West Sussex, England) mast?
No problems on any service.
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).

hi ,i live in portsmouth.last night my tv picture was on and off from about 2000 until i tried a retune(auto & manual) around 2230 and didnt have any signal at all.
my arial is directed to the midhurst tx.i live in a small block of flats where some of the residents have opted for cable.the arial was redirected before the digital c/over from the iow tx.
i have had specialists in to check the signal quality but never at 2230 at night .during normal work hours there dosnt seem to be a problem.only in the evening .please ,any ideas.thank you.

G England: Unless your TV was tuned incorrectly in the first place (i.e. to the wrong transmitter) retuning is only ever going yield negative or neutral results. What you are probably doing is wiping everything that's stored in the hope of picking it up again!
I suggest that you contact at800 which is the company set up by the mobile operators and charged with alleviating reception issues caused by 4G services operating in the 800MHz band. Midhurst uses channels which are just below 800MHz which could perhaps make it more susceptible than Rowridge (Isle of Wight) which uses channels at the lower end of the band. at800 will be able to confirm whether you may be suffering from 4G interference or not.
You may need a filter fitting to the aerial system, assuming that the installer didn't filter it as a matter of course. Also, you might consider switching back to Rowridge which got a taller mast for switchover. I guess if you're anything but Rowridge in the Portsmouth area then you must be unlucky.
