This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Tacolneston (Norfolk, England) transmitter.

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).

Are EPG available on our DAB radio broadcasts as I would like to use this facility to be able to set up auto recordings to an SD card on our hi-fi Thsnks

Robert Bell: I had a "Lobster 700" DAB device once that had access to an EPG that was provided as part of the DAB broadcasts.

Many receivers will show then "now and next" information.

It will really depend on the type of receiver you have if an EPG is shown and scheduled recording can be made.

DAB is promoted as a country-wide service, but near Aldeburgh, Suffolk, DAB reception is almost impossible, even with a loft aerial. Surely there must be plans to address this?

Chris W: All the existing DAB rollout plans were completed last year (BBC national stations are at 97% coverage, D1 National and local muxes cover around 90% of UK population). It's expected that plans for further expansion to fill remaining DAB coverage gaps will only be announced once the government confirm the date for a digital radio switchover.
