Second national DAB digital multiplex advertised

A consortium consisting of GCap Media, BT and Aquiva (formerly NTL broadcast) is up against Channel 4 Radio and National Grid Wireless, bidding to run the UK-wide second national DAB digital radio multiplex.

The new DAB digital radio multiplex licence, which is being advertised from today, is likely to launch in 2009. The new multiplex will have to offer stations with formats different to that broadcast on the current national DAB digital radio multiplex, operated by Digital One.

National Grid Wireless (NGW) is in talks with radio groups interested in launching stations on the new multiplex; if it is successful NGW will oversee the multiplex and build new transmitters.

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