A new transmitter based at Kirkton Mailer improves coverage in and around Perth in Scotland. Around 104,000 people with a DAB digital radio can now tune in to the national commercial services.

Following the switch-on of these new digital radio transmitters, listeners with a DAB digital radio in the above areas can now pick up the national digital services by performing an "Autotune" or "Autoscan" with their DAB-enabled tuner or radio. The list of stations available is as follows:

  • Classic FM

  • Core

  • Life

  • Oneword

  • Planet Rock

  • PrimeTime Radio

  • talkSPORT

  • Virgin Radio

To receive DAB digital radio stations in the UK, you need a DAB digital radio - a new type of radio that can receive digital radio broadcasts. For more information, read our guide to DAB digital radio and discover more about the tuners available to buy.
