Alistair Mowatt:

The Rosehearty transmitter does not have FM or DAB (you don't say which your reception problem is on).

If it's FM, the most likely transmitter is Meldrum roughly to the SSW of you, and the BBC are reporting -
From 10:11am to 3:46pm on 14th Oct 2021 BBC Radio 2 Slightly reduced power due to essential engineering.
Radio 2 is on 88.7 from there. The next nearest transmitter is Knockmore roughly to the WSW of you, Radio 2 on 88.2 and not reporting any faults.

If it's DAB, most likely reception is from Mormond Hill roughly to the SSE of you, the other possibility is Rumster Forest to the NW of you. Neither are reporting any problems.
