DAB transmitters, multiplexes and radio stations

I have created a new system for UK Free TV that displays information about all of the UK's DAB transmitters.

I have created a new system for UK Free TV that displays inform
published on UK Free TV

The information is taken from Ofcom, and is displayed in what I hope you will find a useful way.

There are six types of page shown:

Map of all DAB transmitters

On this map you can click a transmitter symbol to get more information about the selected transmitter.

Maps of each DAB transmitter with indoor coverage for each map shown

These pages show the indoor coverage area for each multiplex on the transmitter, listing of the power for each multiplex, and the stations provided.

List of all the DAB multiplexes

You can click on any multiplex name to see its details.

Lists of the stations on each DAB multiplex and the transmitters carrying the multiplex

Click on a station name to find details of the station.

A list of all the DAB radio stations

For each DAB radio station, a list is shown of the multiplexes that carry the station and the transmitters for each.

Looks like pretty decent DAB coverage to me. The DAB transmitters that are on the south coast, are they restricted in which direction they broadcast in? It just seems like you could easily recieve the DAB signals in Belgium, The Netherlands and the northern part of France!

Comparing the Sussex coast maps with South Wales coast maps and de-facto reception, I could well imagine that reception would be possible way out into the Channel, possibly beyond from a directional DAB aerial. Reports from a boat would be most interesting!

Braintist: OK, so what about if there was a "weather lift" period? Would that mean there would be more chance of the DAB radio stations being picked up in France?

A quick look at your post on 22/07/2011 at 8:16am.
Looks like very few places will get anything more than the BBC multiplex
and big towns like Eastbourne, Worthing and Selsey near Bognor Regis won't get any stations.
Just hope they don't close FM analogue before everybody can get digital.

Good work Braintist
Just browsing through the ofcom pages on radio DAB switchover information, looks like (for my region anyway) in Manchester/North West that there may be plans for new DAB transmitters (Glossop, Warrington, Saddleworth, Beech Hill, Romiley too name a few).

I was just going by the maps above.
But thinking about it, all the places I have mentioned are in direct line of Brighton over the sea.
Unless there are any mountines made of sea water I can't see why they won't get a siginal from Brighton.
