This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Oxford (Oxfordshire, 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. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

I live in Witney and receive Dab radio patchily, dependent where I am located in Witney. With the digital switchover on Wednesday morning of the Beckley/Oxford location, I was of the understanding that this would enable for the power on the Dab transmission to increase, but I still have the same reception problems. When will this occur?

Andy: The changes to the television services have no effect whatsoever on radio signal.

Whilst I can successfully view the expected area of coverage map for Digital TV from Beckley, the DAB map (above) just appears as one colour. Is that meant to imply the whole of Oxfordshire has blanket coverage of DAB? We're getting very poor reception, sometimes nothing at all here in OX13 5HS.

My Pure Tempus1 works fine for DAB on D1 national and BBC National, but does not autotune to the new Oxfordshire 10B stations. Why is this? My Sony DAB docking station has no difficulty in the same house.
Any suggestions?

OliverD: Can you select 10B manually, then store any stations found? It might be that the autotune range starts at 11A on some receivers.

Very many thanks. Solution was indeed to manual tune. Stations did not need storing once that was done : all appear within the existing station list.

Shame 8 miles away from the transmitter in South Oxfordshire and I can barely pick up the Local stations on DAB. Signal strength is almost nothing. I am not convinced the map is accurate. We are line of sight with the transmitter and get a perfect Freeview signal. I suspect the DAB transmitter is very low down on the Mast. 5000W Signal power is wait too low for reaching this far down.

The addition of the Boars Hill transmitter in 2013 is intended to improve reception to the south of the city.

Cannot pick Oxfordshire DAB service up at all on South side of Didcot. In fact recently the national multiplexes have also got worse. I've been with DAB for 10 years now, and despite the hype I've been disappointed with the standard of reception nationwide. Personal DAB sets are next to useless pretty much everywhere when walking around.
