Your website is a font of information for tv and radio reception - I only wish there were sites exactly like this for reception in other countries! Keep up the great work.
My question relates to DAB reception in Epsom, Surrey. According to your DAB maps I am on the fringe of the Berkshire & North Hampshire Hemdeantransmitter (980W) as well as the Kent Bluebell Hill (1200W) transmitter and as luck would have it, on an almost 180° line between the two. I have ordered a 5 element DAB antenna; would it be more advantageous to point it towards the 'weaker' Hemdean & could Bluebell Hill be received from the back of the aerial at the same time? The London multiplexes notwithstanding, the Berkshire & North Hampshire multiplex would be the preferred multiplex to receive.
What do you think about off-direction reception of the extreme fringe Essex Benfleet 12D transmitter? (50.3399,-4.7611)
The Berkshire & North Hampshire multiplex will be extended to East Berkshire within the next few years, which should improve reception in Epsom but will probably knock out reception of other 12D multiplexes e.g. Essex.
The additional sites will be at Coppid Beach, Windsor Castle & Maidenhead.
There will also be a Surrey multiplex within the next couple of years.
DAB seems like an excellent service in places like LONDON, MANCHESTER , LEEDS and BRISTOL.
however here in the west dorset south somerset area ( yeovil and sherborne ) DAB reception is awful. A DAB radio on an upstairs west facing windowledge just about works, guess what - i sold it. Now bought an internet radio as i have given up totally on DAB

Could you please inform me if it is worthwhile for me to buy a digital radio , living in Banham , Norfolk , NR 16 2EY ?
Friends living less than a mile apart in the nearby town of Diss , have completely different reception experience , one having good reception the other none at all .
There is a "Norwich" multiplex which parts of Norfolk (not just Norwich) but it's doubtful that it will be available to you. This multiplex doesn't broadcast from Tacolneston, whereas BBC National and D1 National do.
Refer to the coverage map on page 6 (the projection for good indoor service under normal conditions):
BBC Radio Lancashire's signal has gone very weak on VHF/FM? Can't pick up the station in Rhyl at all well. I can pick up BBC Radio Manchester well, and even BBC Radio Leeds. BBC Radio 1,2,3,4, are very strong signals. Slight hiss pn Radio 3.
