11.02.14 17:02 TV now back on but DAB still off. DAB is sometimes slower settling down than TV after a fault but there is no signal of any sort showing on DAB at the moment

Cow Hill

I think mains might have been off overnight. DAB was off at 0800h, now still intermittent and unusable. Tends to behave like that when the power has been off for a long period.

Tried to report on the BBC form but it is impossible.

I checked TV at 0800 also and at that time BBC1 HD sound was broken up a bit which can also happen after the power has been off but it recovers much quicker than DAB which takes ages to recover..

I just reported Cow Hill DAB faulty, thought the power might have been off overnight but sounds as if they have a much bigger problem nationwide.

Seemed to have been off this morning until nearly 10 o clock until
nearly 1000h

Lost DAB when left coverage from Cow Hill then very patchy, presumably from distant sites.

Fort William Radio 2 VHF FM has been unusable since at least around 0000h 1st June 2019 (possibly earlier but I had not listed to it since much earlier in the day). Very distorted. Other services OK.

Reported on the phone (037 number) but still not showing as faulty on the BBC reception page.

Does not give a lot of confidence in their monitoring and fault recording system.

1745h Sunday 2nd June and Radio 2 is still unusable.

There seems to have been a mains loss at the site this afternoon so it was on reduced power but Radio 2 remained unusable. The BBC website only showed five of the six service on reduced power.

Someone else has now phoned in to report the fault but still nothing about it on the BBC reception page.

Fort William Radio 2 VHF FM normal again sometime around 15:00 - so unusable for two and a half days.
