scott baker: The post between yours says that the transmitter is off air due to a fault, so it will depend on the cause of the fault and how complicated it is to fix. Most transmitter faults are resolved within a few hours. Do not attempt to retune, your signal will return once the transmitter is back on air.

scott baker:

As per the post before your last, there is essential engineering work being done. Do NOT retune whilst you have no signal. If they knew how long the work would take, they would say so.
