This transmitter has no current reported problems

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

Will Radio Derby be using this transmitter - as all other eeforts to get Derby on DAB have failed.

Dave : Not until 2013 or later, as there is no "Derbyshire" local radio multiplex for BBC Radio Derby to go onto: there is not BBC Radio Derby on DAB.

Dave: The longer version is that the BBC are not allowed to set up their own local DAB multiplexes, they have to wait for Ofcom to license a local commercial multiplex to carry their local radio stations, and for that multiplex to start broadcasting.

Dave :
We have fantastic DAB reception now the Quarndon transmitter is on but it still sounds terrible. Radio 2 reminds me of its AM days, Radio 3 seems to change its sound quality and World Service sounds like a mobile phone call. We gave up on DAB as reception was always bubbly. Now its fine but tiring to listen to. Are we doing something wrong?
