BBC powers up new national DAB transmitters at Newport, Gwent and Glasgow

BBC urban music station 1 Xtra, comedy and books channel BBC7 and extra sports coverage station Five Live Sports Extra can now be picked up on a DAB digital radio, extending coverage around Newport and Glasgow

Two new transmitters based at Christchurch near Newport, Gwent, South Wales and Sergeantís Law near Glasgow were recently powered up.

An additional transmitter to be based on the Isle of Man is also planned, serving Douglas and the southern parts of the island.

The switch on of the transmitter allows a full set of the national services from the BBC to be heard on a DAB digital radio in the above areas.

Listeners with a DAB digital radio in and around these 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 are as follows:
