DAB radio problems from Newhaven.
DAB IS broadcasting.
All BBC station show signal strength as 33
But no content. It is as if someone has turned off the BBC feed to transmitter, so it will show 'no problem' as it is broadcasting OK. Just broadcasting silence. I did manage to get Classic FM on DAB. Other commercial stains would not tune in for some reason.
So as Andrew has asked, how do we report this? Direct to the BBC?

NO BBC DAB reception here in Peacehaven since early morning Wednesday, although all other stations working normally. Other than here, I can't find anywhere to get more information.

I have contacted the BBC Radio and TV reception people and they say that this is a known fault and that work is being done to fix it. They could not give me any indication of how long this would take

I have just been in touch with the Radio and TV Investigation Service, who are aware of the problem, engineers are looking into it and hopefully it will be resolved soon(?).
Hope this helps, meanwhile classic is very soothing

I live in Telscombe Cliffs, and also lost or partially lost BBC DAB reception yesterday morning (Wednesday 31 July). I lost the signal completely on two DBA radios upstairs but get "bubbly" reception on a DAB radio downstairs, which dies completely after a few minutes. The Radio and Television Investigation Service website says that "Listeners may experience temporary loss of reception" because of high pressure weather conditions. But haven't we had those conditions for a few weeks now? So why should the problem only crop up yesterday and not before?
