UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

According to Gold's website "If you have an older DAB radio (without the DAB plus feature) you may not be able to find us and you will need to purchase one of the latest digital radio's with the DAB+ logo. "
It seems they have changed recently, according to Wikipedia "In September 2019, many of the local-level DAB transmissions of Gold were turned over to the new service Smooth Country, requiring listeners in affected areas to migrate to the national DAB+ transmission of Gold. Gold continues to broadcast on DAB in the East Midlands, where Smooth Country took the place of Chill."
The DAB+ broadcasts are on the Digital One national multiplex. If you have a DAB+ radio it may be that you need to reposition your radio or aerial if in range of a transmitter. It seems that the DAB transmissions only continue on the Nottingham/Derby/Leicester DAB transmitters.
