Katy: According to another poster on the Beecroft Hill DAB page, the top section of the transmitter mast has been removed, presumably in order to have it's antennas replaced, hence the transmitter is off air. Retuning was a bad idea as you've now deleted all of your channels which were previously tuned correctly. You will need to retune again later on once the transmitter is back on air in order to restore your channels (the work should be completed by the time it gets dark).
