This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Penicuik (Midlothian, Scotland) transmitter.

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).

I live in Penicuik but am disappointed to discover that the only BBC channel that I can receive on DAB is BBC Radio Scotland. When can I expect to receive all the BBC channels, as they can in Edinburgh?

Derek Ball: The BBC is filling in gaps in the national DAB network over the next few years, I think a new DAB transmitter at Crumhaugh Hill is planned for 2011.

Derek all the BBC channels are available in Penicuik, but reception depends on your aerial position. I can receive everything upstairs, but downstairs where the line to the transmitter is blocked by Cuiken School, I loose the BBC National channels. The UK Digital Radio website recommends using an external aerial to receive the BBC National programmes in Penicuik.
