Rhymney (Caerphilly, Wales) DAB transmitter
This transmitter has no current reported problems
The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Rhymney (Caerphilly, Wales) 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).

How nice to be able to receive Radio Wales on Dab today now that the Rhymney Dab Transmitter was off air!!!
Managed to receive it on 12A 223.936MHz , 12C 227.360MHz 7 12D 229.072MHz.
Why do we need Rhymney at such a high level (1KW) that it is blocking reception of other Transmitter masts in the South Wales Area?
The Ebbw Vale Transmitter at hilltop comes in a perfectly error-free signal in this area but is blocked when the Rhymney TX is on.
Obviously the correct reception tests have not been done.
Rhymney Dab TX completely desenses the front end of receivers in this area that they cannot receive anything else!!!
Recommend that power should be reduced to 20 Watts ERP.
1KW from this TX is not needed due to enough signal from the Ebbw Vale TX for this area.
