This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Rumster Forest (Highland, Scotland) 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).

DAB broadcast out again, second time in two weeks.
Is there a problem or maintenance going on?

It says that the Rumster Forrest transmitter broadcasts DAB radio. But I cannot get a signal on my home or car radio. My TV reception is fine. Am I missing something? I live just outside Wick in Caithness postcode KW1 5TU

Samantha Henderson: If you check the Rumster Forest Freeview page (this is the DAB page) you'll see that there has been engineering work carried out at the transmitter in the last 24 hours, which may still be ongoing.

We arrived home with our new car yesterday.
All the radio stations are DAB. It was fine until we
arrived in Caithness when the radio started cutting out.
Before long it died completely. Is there no DAB here?

It depends on where you are in Caithness, it's a large area and reception in some parts could be patchy.
Where there is reception it is only the BBC National multiplex on Block 12B 225.648 MHz
There are no commercial multiplexes broadcast from Rumster Forest or Keelylang Hill.
