LISTENERS to Hertbeat FM are experiencing radio silence today (Wednesday).

A broken transmitter means the radio station is not currently broadcasting on 106.9FM - the frequency that reaches WGC and Hatfield.

The Old Knebworth-based station's other frequency, 106.7FM, which covers Stevenage, Hitchin and Letchworth, is unaffected.

Breakfast show DJ Steve Folland: "We're not off air, but we've got a problem with one of the transmitters.

"We've had so many calls and emails this morning from people asking what's happened to us.

"People have even been late for work as they set us as their alarm, yet they obviously couldn't hear anything when they went off!"
