Map of all DAB transmitters
Monday 28 July 2014 11:40AM

It would be useful if you could select say D1 National and your post code, and see a map or list of your transmitter locations.

Although I get great BBC National DAB from Benfleet, the LBC on D1 National is variable, but it is not clear which transmitters may have been selected, since there appear to be several possibilities.

I'd like to use this information to ask the manufacturer (Pure) if and when they check and recheck for best reception.

Thank You

No text programme information data being transmitted on Benfleet DAB Radio 4.
Been like it now for a couple of days.
Same result on 3 radio's.

I know this say's UK(Free-TV) but this is a Freeview radio question - can't see a specific place to ask radio questions.

I've selected Crystal Palace as the best transmitter and have been using it for some time, and all is well except LBC Radio, which has recently lost it's EPG. Other channel EPG are okay, and the LBC programmes are being received okay.

The other point of note is that LBC radio has been on channel 856 for some time, although it appears to be listed elsewhere as being on channel 732, which I think that is what it was on before it was move some time ago.

Could it be that the LBC Radio EPG has been lost because of a continuity mix up somewhere?
And if so who can fix it please?

Thank you.

Doing a scan with the aerial disconnected has sorted it out, LBC radio is back on channel 732 with its EPG updated, and all is well again.

Just for info, I'm using the NextPVR program on Windows 7, with a couple of RTL2832U+R820T USB receiver dongles.
