Probabaly a mains failure at the site, can't see any 106.4 HP radio signal, and if Cellular is poor then that suggests all the site is off.

Interestingly, ENWL reports no outage for the station's postcode:


No Outage


A tweet at 07:55 from High Peak Radio said that it is off air due to a "power cut" at the site.

What I don't understand is why does it take so long to inform of signal failure on the website? If it went down at 04.49, why did it indicate no faults at 09.30?

John B: This website, as it says in the title bar of each page, is independent of broadcasters.

The message at the top of any reported faults is sourced from the BBC. That information gets there by this site 'looking' at the BBC one rather then the BBC sending the information. Thus, this site will only ever be updated when it automatically 'looks' at the BBC.

As there are over 1,000 TV transmitters alone in the UK, it stands to reason that this site puts in a lot of requests to view the BBC engineering pages.

I should imagine that the more often that one party (i.e. this website) does it, the more it is likely that the BBC is to notice and take action against it using lots of bandwidth (i.e. repeatedly accessing its pages).

This is my guess; I'm not the site owner.
