UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

James Luke: Transmitter sites are owned by Arqiva.

The full complement of channels are never likely to broadcast from Carnmoney Hill and 1,000 plus small relays.

The broadcasters who hold the licences for the multiplexes that don't transmit from Carnmoney consider it not worth their while to do so. They operate purely for profit and have no "Public Service" obligation under the law.

It is therefore not down to the transmitting station owner that the Commercial broadcasters don't wish to transmit.
