This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Poole (Poole, 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).

Howard Stocker: Is it back to normal now Howard? I'm at the top of the hill and air seems ok today.

Since retuning our 2 Samsung bedroom TVS July 2019, I can no longer get the above 2 channels. We live in the BH14 8EF area (Poole, Dorset). I am told the reason for this problem is because our address is not in the CHANNEL GROUP. Can you advise how we get into this Channel Group please? The 2 missing channels are firm favourites in our household! Thanks.

ELAINE BEESLEY: Either you have misunderstood, or whoever told you that doesn't know what they're talking about. True Entertainment and True Movies have moved to the local TV multiplex, which is broadcast in areas where there is a local TV station on either Freeview channel 7 or 8 (there isn't a local TV station covering Poole).

My radio displays 'no service available' since I switched on at 9.30 this morning and of course I can get no sound. I listen to Classic fm exclusively normally. Please advise.

Petronella Ellis:

Classic FM is carried on the D1 National Commercial multiplex Block 11D: 222.064MHz but that is not transmitted from the Poole transmitter, but from the Nine Barrow Down transmitter near Studland.
As you haven't given a full postcode, it's difficult to give definitive reception advice, but it could most likely be current weather conditions that sometimes comes with high pressure and is periodically affecting Radio and TV reception across different parts of England and Wales at present.
For an explainer, see…sure
If it's a transmitter fault or maintenance, I'm afraid little to no information is available for commercial multiplexes.
