Location: FDN DAB Transmitter Site - Markham Tower, Bowers Avenue, Norwich, United Kingdom
Today we carried out a maintenance visit to our main transmitter site in Norwich. We installed some additional monitoring equipment (including swapping out an ancilliary computer) replaced a faulty power amplifier and inspected the antenna system.
There were a few brief interuptions of our output between approximately 13:18 and 13:28. All services became fully operational before 13:30.
A temporary encoder glitch caused the test transmission loop and DLS text on Future Plus+ to go off-line between 15:14 and 16:25 today. The encoder was re-booted after the fault was identified and is now running normally. No other services on the FDN Greater Norwich DAB Multiplex were affected and all service (including Future Plus+) are now running normally.
Early this morning, (from 00:55) we carried out various tests and alternations to the configuration of the FDN DAB Multiplex for the Greater Norwich Area. This work was in preparation for the addition of various new services to the multiplex in the near future.
The Multiplex was put back into normal operating mode by 01:15.
