National commercial DAB network sees boost to power

Digital One, the national commercial digital radio network operator, has increased the power at a number of its transmitters for further robustness and reliability of signal strength.

This has become possible after negotiations with ntl, the Radio Authority, the Radio Communications Agency and RTE in Southern Ireland over the issues of possible interference. RTE has agreed that it has no objections to the programme.

Power has now been increased at five transmitter sites: Alsager's Bank, Bilsdale, Cadlbeck, Emley Moor and Wenvoe.

A further 12 transmitters are also scheduled for power increases within the next 12 months. These are: Craigkelly, Daventry, Holme Moss, Kirk O'Shotts, Mendip, Moel-Y-Parc, Pontop Pike, Oxford, Sutton Coldfield, Tuners Hill, Waltham and Winter Hill.

Listeners with a DAB digital radio in the above areas can hear the national commercial 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
