MuxCo North Wales

Thursday, 22nd May 2008
MuxCo heads across the border seeking North Wales DAB licence

MuxCO is taking a back seat to Town and Country Broadcasting in its stake to run the local DAB digital radio multiplex for North Wales, designed to serve the counties of Gwynedd, Anglesey/Sir Ynys Mon, Conwy and most of Denbighshire/Sir Ddinbych. It is proposed blocks 10D and 12C will cover the west and east of the region respectively, which means MuxCo could provide up to around twenty different stations for the area.

Carriage for BBC Radio Cymru and BBC Radio Wales is also reserved on the multiplex.

A news and information channel Wales Live will also launch alongside proposed travel information service Traffic Radio in both Welsh and English, though a provider for this service has yet to be confirmed. The Highways Agency is responsible for the traffic service in England, but Traffic Wales oversees the country's motorways. It is proposed the Welsh Assembly will provide funding for the service. Christian music station UCB is also planned to take its place on the multiplex.

Two transmitters are proposed to serve North Wales - one at Moel-y-parc, from which the Wrexham and Chester multiplex will also broadcast - and the other at Great Ormes Head (Pen-y-Gogarth) near Llandudno.
