Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
Since Friday 16 September 2016 we have lost ALL DAB radio stations on the D1 National Newhaven 11D band. Does anybody know of any reason why, because I can't find any mention of a problem on the Newhaven Transmitter website. We are more than one DAB radio in the house, and the stations have disappeared from all of them. I have done a autotune on my own Pure DAB radio (just now - Sunday 18 Sep at 14.1 hrs) and the only stations it finds and lists are those on the Sussex and BBC bands. We have an outdoor roof aerial pointing to the Newhaven transmitter.
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated

Since 18:30 on 6th July BBC1 local news from Freeview at Newhaven channel 50 has been from London rather than Southeast. (The correct program is going out on Sky).
In spite of this being an area-wide problem in BN25 the BBC advisers only respond by telling people to do a manual retune to channel 50 - pointless if you are already on it - and of course it doesn't solve the problem.
It seems that the news feeds are being incorrectly routed, and that is not the sort of error that automatic checks on the transmitter can identify.
