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).

Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Westerglen (Falkirk, Scotland) mast?

I live in Falkirk and I've noticed that during the day (roughly 10am - 2pm) all AM channels go 'silent' - well, at least Radio Scotland and TalkSport. This has been happening for the last few weeks and did happen last year for a spell too. Is there something going on that would cause this?
