I have just looked at another page on this website and it is indicating that the Broneirion transmitter is Off Air. Why then does this page say that there is no problem ? Why does it not indicate what the problem is and when it is anticioated to be resolved ?

Jenny Milborrow: This page does not say that there is no problem; it states that the BBC and Digital UK have not reported a problem.

There is a link "Click to recheck" which goes to this page:

Radio & Television Service

On there it says off air from 14:08 today.

This website is independent of the broadcasters. The information it gives is taken from official sources.

It works by checking these sources. Only at the time it checks will it ever be updated. That is, it 'looks' at these sources. There are over 1,000 transmitters in the UK so that is a lot of automatic checking. The more often it does this the more load it puts on the server and the more likely those running the websites that it is checking are to block such access.

Hence it may take some time for the information on here to be updated which is why the "Click to recheck" link is provided.
