Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Stockland Hill (Devon, England) mast?

STOCKLAND HILL transmitter - DAB: BBC National DAB Radio Weak Signal from 12:47 on 21 Nov to 12:58 on 21 Nov. BBC

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).

I live in Torquay, should I be tuned to Stockland hill? I am unable to receive Motors TV on channel 71. Can you please advise. Thanks

Colin: It depends where you are in Torquay as possibilities vary due to the terrain.

If you are tuned to Stockland Hill then you won't get Motors TV as it's carried on the new quasi-national COM7 HD multiplex. Beacon Hill has it, this being closer to Torquay, although as I say it depends on the terrain between you and the transmitters as to which you might be in with a shot at.

Hi - I have a hi end DAB in my car. I have been using DAB for 10 years so have got very used to the great signal all the way between Exmouth and Torquay. During the last 6 months I have been noticing a lot of signal drop out on the Exeter Side of Haldon Hill. I changed my car last week and get exactly the same drop outs. I did a trip to Bristol today and had problems up until Cullumpton then perfect the rest of the way. Is there something going on at Stockland Hill that may explain this?

Thanks Anthony

Stockland Hill clearly reduce their booster power to save energy after 10/10.15pm at night! SO SO SO many times I have been mid film when it loses signal with checkered screen and stuttered talking - sometimes taking down the colour/contrast/brightness and flicking around helps but then it suddenly said signal problem.

IT HAPPENS SO OFTEN NOW IT IS A JOKE! ALWAYS SAME TIME> I Cannot watch itvbe/be1 moviemix, all the channels in 30/40's and film 4 die on me!

dee: The power output isn't changed at night on any TV transmitter. However, sometimes you can get strange interference from other sources that appear at specific times. Please see the Freeview intermittent interference page for how to fix it. Look for something on a timer such as light or security system.

dee: Except it doesn't - the BBC1 mux and others are on 50,000w, and logically, why would they 'turn down the power' at 10.15pm?

However, if your getting the same problem at 10.15pm every night, that points to dodgy aerial leads and a local problem, possibly a thermostat/timer with a dodgy switch in your house. Search for 'single source interference' on this site for details.

Can anyone tell me and my neighbours when or if they will ever upgrade the Stockland Hill transmitter so we can receive all the HD channels please?
Thank-you from frustrated viewers in Babbacombe
