This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Rowridge (Isle Of Wight, 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).

Is there a problem today 28 December? My DAB radio reception in Damerham SP6 3HQ, which has always been OK, has completely disappeared.

stephen : Things go wrong regularly, it is unreasonable to expect everything to work perfectly at all times! If things were not fixed by engineers, after a while we would have no service whatsoever, and thank yourself that in the UK, unlike here in Ireland, engineers try their best to fix problems quickly!!

Hi, I live in Chillerton (!) on the Isle of Wight. It looks like I can't receive 12B BBC national radio stations from either Rowridge or Ventnor. Does anyone know if there are plans to improve the coverage of the Isle of Wight for BBC National radio as it looks patchy at them moment.

This morning 17/09/2019, I am having trouble listening to LBC on DAB. Around Ryde, it goes off most of the time, and you just catch the odd word.
According to this site there are no problems.
Has the coverage changed?

John Osborn:

Having searched for information about transmitter issues for the Digital One multiplex, I couldn't find any for the Ryde area. That doesn't mean there wasn't any, getting information like this from the commercial operators is not possible a lot of the time. Hopefully reception is back to normal now.
