This transmitter has moved on 22nd August 2018, would it be possible to see the changes reflected in the ukfree transmitter maps please?

Details of the move are here:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/rec…m205

Unfortunately this removes the option of East Midlands regional news for us since the new tx location is over the other side of a ridge - the old tx location was actually ON the ridge that now stops us from receiving a signal! Not good.

The owner of this website, Brian Butterworth, is the only person who can make any changes to the site and the information it contains. However, he has not made any achanges for several months now and none of us regular contributors know why.

If you require up-to-date information about any transmitter, please go to the Digital UK Coverage Checker at Digital UK - Coverage checker and enter the requested information.

Brian Lowe:

It would have been helpful; if you had provided a full post code so that we could look up the expected reception conditions at your location.

I suggest that your check all your aerial cables and connection. Unplug all coaxial plugs/soclets and refit them. Corrosion/oxidation on those contact is a common cause of the problems you report.
