Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Icomb Hill (Gloucestershire, England) mast?

No problems on any service. BBC

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).

You should be addressing your comments towards Arqiva who operate the transmitters. However, as the problems seems to be due to weather conditions there is nothing anyone can do about it. If it were a transmitter fault, then everyone receiving from that source would be equally affected, but they are not so there is unlikely to be any transmitter fault to correct.

This website is entirely independent of all broadcasters.

There is no problem with the transmitter! Your reception is being affected by the current high pressure across the country and as that is a perfectly natural phenomenon (that has been known about for a great many years) there is nothing anyone can do about it apart from wait until the weather pattern changes. Do not retune.

I've been notified of your post about LBC from Lark Hill, but can't find the post which is supposed to be here rather than the Lark Hil;l page! LBC is on the Digital One multiplex broadcast from Lark Hill.

Trying to discover faults on Commercial multiplexes is like trying to find needles in haystacks. The BBC did report a transmitter fault from 12:29pm to 1:11pm on 8th Apr 2020 when it was off-air, but i can find any further information about Lark Hill.
If you are still having problems with reception from Lark Hill, you'd probably be best phoning LBC and report the problem to them as they would know exactly who to contact about any transmitter fault affecting their broadcasts.

w,s.elsmore: All DAB transmitters are virtically polarised, there aren't any using horizontal polarity.

Gill Perry:

This is likely to be due to current weather conditions creating "Temperature Inversion/Tropospheric Ducting" where signals from distant transmitters are carried further than normal, due to the particular layers of the atmosphere. It causes interference to your wanted signals. The problems can last for seconds, minutes ,hours, sometimes even longer. Do NOT retune, you are likely to just lose your correct tuning.
There are currently no reported transmitter faults.
Despite the incorrect spelling, this link does work - it's a very simplistic technical explanation of the sort of thing that goes on.….jpg

We have several TVs - all have the same issue with reception since Thursday, so, I'm sure it's not a problem with the sets. Post code GL541AA - Stow-on-the-Wold.

Have tried manual and automatic re=scans and only receive a poor signal on channel 22 with six OXON and BUCKS stations.
