This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Winter Hill (Bolton, 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).

My problem is with DAB radio, not TV. The radio is unable to latch onto the clock so nothing works.
I cannot receive any of the BBC or World service broadcasts.

What is the frequency of Jazz FM from the Winter Hill transmitter. I have just purchased a new Roberts WM-202 radio which does not pick up Jazz FM, I have a little Goodmans DAB receiver which picks up Jazz FM no problem.

Colin Davies: Jazz FM is broadcast in the DAB+ standard on the SDL National multiplex on frequency block 11A (216.928MHz). Is the Roberts WM-202 able to receive any other stations on this multiplex such as Talk Radio or Planet Rock? If not, try the full scan option in the menu as 11A is outside the UK's original DAB allocation and isn't scanned by default on some radios.

How do we receive Talk Sport on a DAB radio?

Bob: Scan for stations and if you're within the coverage area TalkSport should appear in the station list. See your radio's manual for instructions.
