Ofcom has advertised the local DAB radio multiplex licence to cover North Wales.
The regulators estimate the licence, which will be issued for 12 years, could achieve coverage of an area with an adult (aged 15+) population of around 300,000.
Today’s advertisement is one of a number of new local radio multiplex licences planned to develop DAB coverage for local services in those parts of the country not already served.
The closing date for the receipt of applications is 3pm on 21 May 2008. A non-refundable fee of £1,000 is required for each application submitted.
This local radio multiplex will include capacity reserved for BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru.
