DAB radio changes in Yorkshire as MXR closes

The closure of the final MXR regional digital radio multiplex is happening this month, with some services ceasing in the area and others moving to local multiplexes.

Bauer has requested the addition of Capital, Smooth and Heart on its Leeds and South Yorkshire multiplexes, and the addition of Capital, Smooth and Gold on its Humberside mux.

There’s no news on other services on MXR such as Radio Yorkshire, UCB Gospel, UCB Inspirational or XFM moving multiplexes yet, meaning some or all of them may no longer be available on DAB in the area once it closes on June 29th.

Capital currently covers most of Yorkshire on FM, whilst Heart only covers West and South Yorkshire.

For full Yorkshire coverage, Capital and Heart would need to join the join the MuxCo’s North Yorkshire and UTV’s Bradford and Huddersfield multiplexes but no changes have been made public as yet. We’ll update this as more information becomes available. *Update 18th June: Radio Yorkshire, Capital and Heart will be joining North Yorkshire, plus Bradford and Huddersfield.

MXR, owned by Global and Arqiva, also operated in the North East, North West, Severn Estuary and West Midlands but those multiplexes have been closed down to concentrate on the roll-out of local DAB.
