Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Whitehaven (Cumbria, England) mast?

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).

With Planet Rock moving to 11A.
Is the Whitehaven transmitter going to transmit digital band 11A?

I've been told (by the Communications Director of Bauer Radio) that there are no plans at all in the pipeline to change the current, new setup. I'm desperately hoping they change their minds and have been campaigning since early March, because losing an est. 200,000 listeners isn't going to do the station much good:-(

Anyone else having DAB problems in Whitehaven area? Car radio only receiving BBC stations; home radio unable to tune into anything.
