Ofcom advertises new FM commercial radio licences for Manchester

Ofcom is advertising an FM commercial radio licence to cover the city of Manchester and surrounding area.

The measured coverage area of this new service is likely to contain an adult population (aged 15+) of around 1.3 million, which is more restrictive than that achieved by the existing Galaxy 102 service, which contains around 1.6 million adults. The exact coverage will be determined by the location of the transmission site and other technical characteristics. The proposed frequency (97.7 MHz) for this licence is subject to international agreement on radio spectrum usage.

The closing date for the submission of applications is 5.00 p.m. on 9 February 2005 . A non-refundable fee of ?12,000 will be payable for each application submitted.

The full details for this licence, including the guidelines and procedures for the submission of applications, can be obtained from the Ofcom website.
