National commercial boosts power of DAB network by 71KW

Digital One, the national commercial digital radio network operator, has finished the boost to its transmitter network that carries digital-only stations Planet Rock, pop station Core and books-and-plays channel Oneword.

The power increase became possible after negotiations with ntl, the commercial radio regulator, the Radio Communications Agency and RTE in Southern Ireland over any issues of possible interference. In total, 71 KW has been added to transmission power.
