Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Naish Hill (Wiltshire, 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).

Guy Weatherburn:

Do you still have a problem?

Planet Rock should be on the SDL national multiplex Block 11A: 216.928 MHz in this area but it is also on the Bristol Local multiplex Block 11B: 218.640 MHz so do check which multiplex you are getting the problem reception on - use you Info option in Settings.
There are transmitters for SDL at Blunsdon and Naish Hill, which you get may depend on exact location.

It doesn't seem to be on the Local mutliplexes in West Wilts.
Naish Hill would use Block 10D: 215.072 MHz
whereas Blunsdon uses Block 11C: 220.352 MHz

If you still have the issue, then your best bet would be to phone Planet Rock and tell them, giving your location and which Multiplex you have the problem on. They should know which engineering people to contact to get it checked.

Update - I've just read a report that some/maybe all of Blunsdon DAB was Off the air due to a fault from 9 Jan 08:15 until 9 Jan 16:57. .
This may have been a contributory factor to your issue if it's now resolved.
