Does anybody know of any coverage maps for BBC World Service, Deutsche Welle and RTL France?

What I'm trying to find out is whether I should be able to receive these stations in Manchester (North West England)?

Clicking on the names of some TX sites on this list eg Orfordness, Issoudun (3pm) or Kvitsoy (9am) brings up rough coverage maps.

When RTE test on 252 overnight soon (April?) you should be able to pick it up in Manchester depending on the power they use.

That explains the lack of availability then! Thanks to both of you.

I have been listening to DW this Saturday morning between 8:30 UTC and 9:30 UTC.
Can anybody tell me what programs they broadcast on DRM. It was not the English program (as that was on satellite only and they spoke German :rolleyes: ) and it was also not the German language program. Is there a special DW program that is not published?

Hi pb1,
the DRM stream is a mix of DW programs, somtimes the same as the English or German program or just time shifted, I have not seen a detailed schedule for the DRM stream, maybe write to DW. Would be nice if they would broadcast an EPG like on BBC WS.

Wow, do you get an EPG on BBC WS. I did not get one on my MR 27024 for BBC, unfortunately. I do get radiotext but no proper EPG.

I do not get it with the Roberts MP40 either, but Dream does support the EPG, see example in the attachment. Future receivers should be capable of decoding it too.

Dear Simone,

DW did answer to my request for their DRM schedule. It is as you said a mix of Deutsches Programm (DP), English Program (EP) and a European program in either German or English. See attachment.
