Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Keighley (Bradford, England) mast?

No problems on any service. BBC


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).

Radio Leeds alone has been unavailable 28/29 May at BD15 0ER, probably from Keighley Multiplex. I've tried complete scan on radio. All other stations seem present.

BBC Radio Leeds should be available on a Local multiplex from the Keighley, Idle and Luddenden transmitters. This multiplex is I believe operated by "switchdigital". See Switchdigital - for contact details.
That Local multiplex is also on a number of other transmitters covering the Bradford and Huddersfield areas.

Graham: Depending on where you are located, you may also be able to receive BBC Radio Leeds on the Leeds local mux operated by Bauer.

It might be worth a manual tune of your receiver - sometimes automatic scans miss weaker signals.
Block 11B: 218.640 MHz for the Bradford/Huddersfield multiplex
Block 12D: 229.072 MHz for the Leeds multiplex.

There is currently no DAB radio available in several villages served by this transmitter, yet there is no fault listed. According to the BBC transmitter checking page, everything is A-OK for DAB, and the problem must be my radio... How can you tell 'them' there's a problem? Or find out when it might be fixed?

I'm sure that the fact that there isn't a fault being reported on the DAB page for the Keighley transmitter is due to the volume of outages there are resulting from this abysmal weather.

Statement from BBC Engineering -

"Interruptions to television and radio services due to Storm Arwen

High winds and rain are causing problems with electricity supplies to several transmitters across the UK. Regional electricity suppliers are working hard to restore services. You can check the status of your local transmitter using our transmitter checker tool.

While you're waiting you could try BBC iPlayer or BBC Sounds to carry on watching or listening to your favourite programmes. They are both available on Smart televisions and many other internet connected devices.

Keep up with the latest weather in your area."

FYI, the BBC Freeview transmitter pages are reporting a fault for both Keighley and Keighley Town transmitters
From 7:01:52pm on 27th Nov 2021 BBC A / BBCB HD Off the air due to a fault (both transmitters)

This is most likely due to a power outage affecting the feed to both transmitters or the transmitters directly.
Whilst the BBC have reported fault details on their individual Freeview transmitter pages, they have NOT (yet?) added it to a page which is an engineering list of Freeview (& usually DAB) faults which is where the updates to this site come from. I can find no further updates at present.
