GCap win DAB for 3 counties

The UK's biggest radio commercial radio group, GCap Media, have been awarded the licence to run the DAB multiplex for the counties of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Ofcom picked GCap over MuxCo, the only other applicant for the licence. Stations becoming available digitally for the population of nearly 2 million will include GCap's two Chiltern stations and Horizon.

The Now Digital service has been given a 12 year licence to broadcast its multiplex. This is the first award of a number of new local radio multiplex licences planned to develop DAB coverage for services in those parts of the country not
already served.

The full list of stations proposed in GCap Media's application is:

97.6 Chiltern FM
96.9 Chiltern FM
Horizon Radio
Classic Gold 792
BBC Three Counties Radio

The Now Digital multiplex proposes to be on the air using 7 transmitter sites by July 2008.
