Hi. I keep getting sound drop outs for BBC Radio Scotland. Signal is strong. right next to Braid Hills. There is no burbling or squeaks. sound goes for a brief second and then continues on. can be as little as 3 per hour to as much as 1 every minute. Not sure if it is a broadcast, multiplex or radio software issue. I have several Pure radios in the house and they are all the same. Thanks

Hello, for two days now I've had no DAB for BBC Scotland. 14 Jan and 15 Jan 2015. I live in EH7 5RN. No faults have been reported to any website I can find. I've spot checked about ten other DAB stations including local ones like Tay, only BBC Scotland and the Gaelic station seem to be silent. All other stations working perfectly. I've reset and rescanned the radios on my PUre DAB. Nothing. Second full day of this, weird. Anyone else? Any suggestions?

I'm experiencing this problem also Ankara. I live in EH11. I have three DAB radios and two of them are giving v. bad reception while one is recieving none of my presets. I've also done re-scans for stations. Something suddenly changed on 14th/15th Jan.
First time this has happened.
Any news??

Clive: Me too EH16 just as you have described _ bad reception loss of presets etc. Similarly can't find any reported issues. Very frustrating.

Hoped it would have been fixed by now - fist noticed it last night 15th Jan.

Problems on all DAB radios. (Pure, Roberts,Other)

David: Same here in EH11. Just come onto the web to find out what is wrong, expected to find the wind had taken a mast out.

I too have reception problems starting on the evening of the 15th . 2 satnd alone house radios and one personal radio which I listen to travelling by bus from EH17 to my work at the Royal Infirmary. I have searched a number of websites and none report any issues.

Must be a problem though judging by the posts here. Given the bad weather lately I am hoping that this is the cause.

Postcode Checker
Digital Radio
Your local transmitters are...

Just found this:

Transmitter Channel Effect When
Braid Hills BBC National DAB Radio Off Air from 20:59 today
Craigkelly BBC National DAB Radio Reduced Quality from 18:00 today to 20:59 today
Angus - No reported problems -
and there are issues on 2 of them.

There have been recent problems on this platform, at your post code.

If a fault is displaying as current we can assure you it is being worked on by our technical teams and we would advise you to check back with the Transmitter Checker at regular intervals, for updates.

This has been going on since Friday 16 January. Digital 1 and Edinburgh local MUXes seem to be very low power. Tested on a variety of receivers and in the car in NW and S Edinburgh. Have been unable to find details beyond the above post. Good old VHF to the rescue for now!
