BBC Radio 1, 2, 3, & 4 are Down

The Darvel Mast has been out of action because of the Storm. An annoying but, totally understandable, problem.

However, the BBC is now off the Air for the On-line Listeners as well.

The BBC Site is working but when you hit the "Listen" Button you get "Error 500" which, I believe, means that it is unable to handle the volume of Traffic.

Talk about "Unfit for purpose" or what!

Covergirl: Darvel was not the only Mast, in Scotland, that was down.

I believe that several other masts, in the UK, were down due to the high winds across the country.

Before anyone picks me up on this. I believe that the term "down" refers to them being out of service rather than having been blown over.

If a main station aerial is damaged it may also take out several local relays.

But not always!
