The latest radio multiplex licence has been advertised by Ofcom, this time to cover Somerset.

The multiplex is one of a number of new local radio multiplex licences planned to develop digital coverage for local services in those parts of the country not already served. The licensing process should lead to a significant expansion in digital radio services throughout the UK.

Ofcom estimates the licence could achieve coverage of an area with an adult population of around 480,000.

This local radio multiplex will include capacity reserved for the transmission in digital form of BBC Somerset, and the licence will be issued for a twelve-year period.

The closing date for the receipt of applications is 3pm on 23 April 2008. A non-refundable fee of £5,000 will be payable for each application submitted.
