BBC national DAB radio transmitter expansion Broadens

Listeners to DAB digital radio in the Norfolk town of Norwich can now hear the BBC's very own national DAB stations, including 6 music and 1Xtra, thanks to a new transmitter located at Tacolneston.

The addition of a new transmitter means around 310,000 people from the city itself across to The Broads can pick up the BBC's new digital-only services as well as BBC FM stations simulcasting on DAB.

The area already has a selection of stations broadcasting on the local DAB digital radio multiplex for Norwich. In addition, there is a national commercial multiplex up and running for the area.

Listeners with a DAB digital radio in Norwich and surrounding areas can receive the new services by performing an "Autotune" or "Autoscan" with their DAB-enabled tuner or radio. The national BBC services now available in and around the Norwich area are as follows:

  • BBC Asian Network

  • BBC Radio 1

  • BBC 1Xtra

  • BBC Radio 2

  • BBC Radio 3

  • BBC Radio 4

  • BBC Radio Five Live

  • BBC Five Live Sports Extra

  • BBC 6 Music

  • BBC 7

  • BBC World Service
