AM Radio listeners in parts of Central Scotland are being affected by transmitter work lasting until early June, with daytime shutdowns affecting radio stations broadcast from the Westerglen transmitter near Falkirk.
Engineering work is due to continue until 5th June 2016, and the BBC has said that BBC Radio 4 198kHz LW, BBC Radio Scotland (810kHz) and BBC Radio 5 Live (909kHz) are subject to shutdowns between 10:05 and 17:45 on weekdays and morning shutdowns on two Saturdays and two Sundays, depending on the weather.
TalkSPORT (1089kHz) and Absolute Radio (1215kHz) also broadcast from Westerglen and are also subject to breaks in service.
