The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Winchcombe (Gloucestershire, 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).

Gary Bayliss: If GQN is supposed to be 6QN then there is no DAB coverage predicted at that postcode for any stations, but if you confirm the correct postcode we can check again.

Gary Bayliss:

There's obviously a typo in that postcode! Did you mean GL54 5QN?
If so, you should get reception of the BBC main multiplex, but could well struggle to get any commercial multiplexes unless you have clear line of sight to the NE or SW for the nearest commercial transmitters.
If however the postcode you mean is in the Langley area, then if you are to the N or NW of Langley you may struggle to get the main BBC multiplex.
You should ensure that any future purchase of a DAB radio is DAB+ and not just plain DAB or you will be limited in the future as more stations move to DAB+ transmission mode.
