Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Chatton (Northumberland, England) mast?

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).

Stephen Thompson: According to R&T Investigation the BBC National multiplex is broadcasting. It would be helpful to qualify which are missing, as your comment implies some are but they have been alluded to.

No signal from Chatton to Rothbury (NE65 7TL) all morning. I can't find any explanation or information online.

Rich Hurst: The Digital UK predictor only shows the Rothbury relay as being receivable at your postcode, rather than Chatton. Both Chatton and Rothbury show a short outage lasting a few minutes yesterday afternoon, so there could be further work being carried out this morning that hasn't shown up yet if there was a fault that caused yesterday afternoons outage, rather then planned engineering work.

Thomas steele: Please provide a full postcode so that we can see which transmitter you're using and your predicted coverage. Also, have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Do not attempt to retune.

Generally variable signal in the last few days here in Powburn NE664HL. Poor in the daytime better in the evening but today 14/8 very bad.Our aerial is untouched and in the loft.Problem is on more than one set.
Is there a problem with the transmitter which could explain this?

Iain Hedley:

I assume that you believe you get your TV signals from the Chatton TV transmitter although you have posted on the DAB transmitter page. If you do get your signals from Chatton, it is listed this week for Planned Engineering with "Possible weak signal". Depending on your location, weak signal may seem like no signal (digital cliff edge) to your receiver. A full postcode would be needed to check predicted reception at your location and which transmitter(s) and multiplexes you might receive.

Do NOT retune whilst you have No signal or a badly pixellated picture as it often just clears the correct tuning and also you might end up tuned to a weaker than normal signal from another transmitter which will be unreliable. You'll then need to retune again when your transmitter's signals return to normal.
