Your DAB coverage for the Whitehawk Brighton transmitter is wildly over optimistic, to say the least. It only provides a usable signal to the north of the south downs in a very few locations

Mid-Sussex must be the only heavily populated area in the UK with limited local radio (BBC Radio Sussex) DAB coverage. There is a feed to the Heathfield transmitter, but no multiplex to serve the area. The 'Sussex Coast' transmitters don't, as somebody has put a big pile of chalk in the way.
I understand that this is to be rectified, not by moving the South Downs, but can find no details. Please can you tell me when it's scheduled?
It's no good having adverts with a little guy extolling the virtues of DAB and encouraging the public to purchase DAB radios, if one of the main programs can't be received.

Trying to get any information regarding DAB Radio is impossible, Radio Sussex say contact the BBC Reception Advise service, who say contact Ofcom, who say contact the Commercial providers, who say there are no plans, contact Radio Sussex.

And don't bother trying to contact Ed Vaizey, the UK Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries or Dr Alix Pryde, Director of BBC Distribution to ask for help

I thinks that page 5 of the website http://www.frequencyfinde….pdf says it all, just big white areas indicating no local radio coverage across wide areas of SE England.

Change-over in 2017, who's kidding who?
