This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Whitby (North Yorkshire, 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).

Dear Sir/Madam

My post code is YO21 1BY. I have lost all digital signal today for both radio and TV. Your website shows no problems with the Whitby transmitter. Is there a problem?

Many thanks

Tim Burnhill

Tim Burnhill: There are no faults showing for the Whitby transmitter. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV?

Tim Burnhill is definitely correct. No TV, FM or DAB from the Whitby transmitter at the moment...

Tim Burnhill: we've also lost all signal all day, and also all our neighbours at Yo21 3Ap so I don't think a loose cable could be the cause!

Without a full post code it is impossible to help. Please ask others at the site if they know the post code. There is more than one Robin Hoods Bay in the UK so you could be anywhere, hence the need for the full post code. It could be that the storm has damage your aerial system?

The BBC don't appear to be reporting any faults at the moment and the transmitter isn't listed for Planned Engineering. However for radio I think it's relay of Pontop Pike and that is listed for Planned Engineering so it's possible there may be interruptions to transmission.
