Redstone FM to launch as online station

A community radio service for East Surrey is to begin online broadcasts from the end of next month ahead of plans to go full-time on DAB.

Redstone FM, which is run partly by people who are disabled or have visual impairments, missed out on an FM licence two years ago.

Last autumn, the station announced that it would start broadcasting on digital radio at some point in 2012. Now the group, which has done a number of RSL broadcasts in the past, says it will go live online from Saturday 30th June. It said it hoped DAB broadcasts would begin later in the summer when the MuxCo multiplex for Sussex and Surrey starts transmissions.

Steve Burge, Redstone FM’s Chairman told Radio Today: “After many months of planning, we are pleased to start broadcasting online. This is the first step in getting on the air with DAB and it is a great boost to our many volunteers who can at last get stuck in to creative programme making.”

Redstone FM says one of its objectives is to ‘offer opportunities to the visually impaired and those with other physical disabilities’. The organisation’s management board of seven includes four disabled directors.
