Radio Newark broadcasting to the East Midlands town on 107.8fm is now also available on local DAB digital radio across a much larger area

Lincolnshire DAB adds Radio Newark

Wednesday, 11th November 2016

Community station Radio Newark, available on 107.8fm in and around the Nottinghamshire town, is branching out onto DAB digital radio. It is now available on the local digital radio multiplex for Lincolnshire.

The station, which includes specialist sixties sounds, relaxing chillout music, soul and blues is available across the county of Lincolnshire on DAB digital radio. Thanks to an extra transmitter at High Hunsley, which was turned on slightly later than planned during October 2016, together with three other transmitters at Grantham, Belmont and Lincoln, stations on the bundle can be heard across a wide area of Lincolnshire, with overspill into Nottinghamshire, East Riding, Sheffield and Hull.

Radio Newark joins KCFM, broadcasting from Hull, which launched on the DAB bundle for Lincolnshire in mid-October 2016. The extra coverage area provided by the bundle into neighbouring counties offers a way for stations to increase their listenership by using space on the Lincolnshire multiplex.

If Radio Newark doesn't appear in your DAB station list after tuning to KCFM, BBC Radio Lincolnshire or Lincs FM on your DAB receiver, and looking through the station list again, you need to retune your DAB digital radio to see if you can pick up the station.KCFM logo
