This transmitter has no current reported problems

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

Reception on BBC DAB stations has been poor for several days...perhaps since the snow last Friday (25th Jan). Non BBC stations remain OK. Any reason? I have several radios in different parts of the house on which I normally get adequate reception. They are all equally bad at present. Postcode is LA8 9PY. Thanks.

I have a DAB portable radio in the house which has been receiving a very good signal for many months. However, about a week ago I lost all DAB reception. I noticed later in the last week that our fixed DAB receiver which uses the TV arial for its signal was also not receiving a DAB signal or a time signal. Can anyone explain what has happened to the transmitter over the lake. My house is in Windermere at LA23 1EL.

Ian Murray: As I said in my posting immediately above yours, Windermere DAB transmitter has been undergoing engineering works, according to reports.

Refer to "R+T Investigation" as there is a further update on 31st Jan "Reduced Quality from 15:29 on 31 Jan to 14:26 yesterday".

keith: Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Do not attempt to retune.
