Ashbourne Radio plans extra FM coverage

Ashbourne Radio is extending its service across the Staffordshire border into Uttoxeter.

Ashbourne Radio and its sister station High Peak already uses this frequency in Wirksworth and Ecclesbourne Valley, and is just one of five used across eight transmission points.

Ofcom has allowed the extension – the third for High Peak Radio Ltd – to start in the Autumn on 101.8 FM giving the company coverage of a number of primary and market towns such as Glossop, Buxton, Uttoxeter, Ashbourne and Castleton, and around a 100,000 MCA.

The company broadcasts from two studios, one in Chapel–en–le-Frith in the North Derbyshire borough of High Peak and one in the Derbyshire Dales in Ashbourne.

High Peak Radio Ltd is an independent and locally owned company. It was the final local commercial licence issued by the Radio Authority. It first went to air in 2004, with Ashbourne Radio following as an opt – out in 2008, the Wirksworth extension being added in 2010 with Uttoxeter to follow later this year.
