Another 2 Transmitters for Digital One

Digital One, the national commercial digital radio multiplex operator, has announced that it has switched on two more new DAB digital radio transmitters.

The transmitter at Stoke Holy Cross will boost coverage for national commercial DAB digital radio for almost 500,000 people in parts of Norwich and the surrounding area to the North East.

At present, due to international frequency clearance issues, this site is operating on reduced power. As soon as clearance is received, the power will be increased.

The Danbury transmitter brings enhanced coverage to a population of approximately 199,000 people in and around Chelmsford.

This brings the number of transmitters now on for national commercial DAB digital radio to 78, and constitutes the world?s largest DAB digital radio network.

Digital One holds the only national commercial licence for digital radio, with a network that stretches from Aberdeen to Penzance, and from Bournemouth to Carlisle. Over 85% of the UK population can now receive the eight national commercial DAB digital radio stations. These are: Classic FM, Core, Life, Oneword Radio, Planet Rock, PrimeTime Radio, talkSPORT and Virgin Radio.

Digital One announced in 2003 that ten more transmitters would be switched on in 2003/4 in a deal agreed with NTL, and the roll out will continue.
