Digital licence advertised

Ofcom has advertised a new local DAB radio multiplex licence to cover Northeast Wales and West Cheshire. The advertisement is one of a number of multiplex licences planned to develop digital coverage in those parts of the country not already served.

Ofcom estimates that this licence could achieve coverage of an area with an adult (aged 15+) population of around 647,000. The exact coverage will be determined by the location of the successful applicant's transmission sites and other technical characteristics.

The closing date for the receipt of applications is 3.00 pm on 9 May 2007. A non-refundable fee of £5,000 will be payable for each application submitted.

This local radio multiplex will include capacity reserved for the transmission in digital form of BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru.

The licence will be issued for a twelve-year period. All applications for this licence will be published on the Ofcom website as soon as possible after the closing date.

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