Radio digital switchover arrives early in S. Yorks.

Travelling home this evening, I was unable to pick up anything on the analogue FM frequencies. Radio 4 withdrawal symptoms set in fairly quickly, having to listen to other people on the bus!
Srriving home, still no analogue signal, but DAB, Freeview, Sky and internet all available. I can't find out what is going on, but I suspect a transmitter fault at Holme Moss.

I would think so as the introduction of DAB/switch off has been put of for a long time

Thanks for the link. It was indeed engineering works at Holme Moss. Signal now restored.
