Thanet (Kent, England) DAB transmitter
Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Thanet (Kent, England) mast?
No problems on any service.
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).

Bob Dellow: I have the same problem, I live in Gillingham I have a Roberts dab radio which picks up radio Kent and have just bought a dab clock radio Tesco own brand, which does not. So is it the radios or the transmitters?

Having real problems in Cliftonville. Pictures have been breaking up for a couple of days today can't get any stations properly at all. How do we know if its a signal problem or our aerial which looks ok ?

Jenny Redman: Although the Cliftonville area is indicated as being covered by the Margate Freeview Light PSB only transmitter (i.e: no commercial channels such as ITV3 /Pick TV/4Music etc) your area is also covered by the Dover "full service" transmitter, however no faults are seen listed against either station, then the easiest way to determine if your problem is being caused by a fault on your aerial system, or possibly by interference from elsewhere, is to make a local enquiry with such as a neighbour.
That said is on the assumption that you have checked that any jumper leads used to connect the TV into the aerial are tightly fitted into their sockets.
By the way, if the elements on your aerial are pointing up and down, then your reception is from Margate, elements on aerials facing towards Dover being horizontal.

I notice that the previous review was posted a couple of years ago but the problem still exists. I have no tv reception for the past three days (June 2016) and now I am wondering whether I need a new aerial or whether the fault is at the transmitter end. (OR WHETHER IT IS THE WEATHER)
When I checked with my neighbour he said that they have Sky so is that the solution? My cousin is visiting me from South Africa next week and I would not wish her to believe that we are not even upto their standards.
