Global makes London DAB multiplex changes

Global Radio is making a number of changes to the platforms used by its London radio stations broadcasting on DAB.

The Arrow is moving from “London 3″ to “London 2″ at 64kbps mono, whilst LBC News 1152 moves from “London 1″ to “London 2″.

XFM is also on the move from “London 2″, where it was broadcasting at 112kbps, to “London 1″ where it returns to 128kbps stereo.

A Global Radio spokesperson told RadioToday: “We are moving these services in order to use our digital capacity more effectively. We are asking listeners to re-tune their receivers to pick up these changes.”

In other mux changes this month, JACK fm Bucks is to be added to the Northants, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire multiplex, as a digital only service from the team at JACK fm Oxford. The proposal to launch a digital JACK fm in this area resulted in JACK fm Herts rebranding to BOB fm earlier this year.

NOW Digital is also getting ready to launch the Derbyshire Multiplex it applied for seven years ago. The company has asked to formally alter the line-up, making changes such as removing Ram FM, Peak FM and Galaxy for a new line-up of Capital, Gold, Gem and Heart, plus BBC Radio Derby. It loses UCB and Smooth Radio from the original proposal.

London 1 multiplex is a joint venture between Bauer Radio and Global Radio, whilst London 2 is owned by UTV and London 3 owned by DRG.
