Map of all DAB transmitters

You can click on a transmitter group symbol to see all the masts in that county or area, or click on a single transmitter to see the coverage area. Due to the large number of radio transmitters, many have been grouped into counties or administrative areas for ease of viewing.

What do the map symbols mean?

 DAB radio transmitter,  DAB transmitter coming,  Transmitter group.

We need a full post code to be able to offer any assistance. merely stating an area as large as you have given does not help at all.

Only with a full post code do we get to see which of the over 1000 transmitters covers your area and whether there are any transmission or reception problems.

Richard Cleaver: R&TI Service is reporting reduced quality on the BBC National mux from Mendip since this morning but I couldn't see any other reported faults or engineering work. Which stations have you tried?

Neil Stone: Unfortunately it's been broken for ages now. You can still access transmitter coverage maps and service info from other pages.

Hi, this looks a nice interesting site this.
Is there a map of predicted or actual DAB signal strengths for areas, in particular Formby, Merseyside. I am about to embark on some field signal strength measurements to confirm a poor/not fit for purpose rear window antenna on a motor vehicle. The manufacturer says the audio system and antenna is within design intent, if it is, I don't think it meets the UK minimum specification for DAB reception. Also the fact there are many complaints about DAB reception on this model of car, and its possibly down to what is in effect an horizontally polarised rear window antennae, DAB being vertically polarised.

Comments from the dealer to this owner, " Dab does not have a standard in the UK.", "It is the governments fault for releasing DAB to early.", "The Bandwidth for DAB is to small, and will not really be fixed until 2020, when the next round of Digital channels are released."

This same manufacture replying to complaints that the Dynamic message (TEXT) only displays 64 characters instead of 128 and simply truncates the text, again initially said the system was within design intent, that was until a web link to a copy of the UK minimum specification for DAB radio was sent to them, They have been working on a fix since December last year, due end of September this year. This is on a new model of car September 2016 and is still being sold with ten fault present.
