Fire Radio returns to Bournemouth multiplex

Celador’s Fire Radio has applied to be part of the Bournemouth DAB multiplex, just weeks after removing itself from the service.

Ofcom approved Celador’s request to take the station off the mux last month, but when contacted by RadioToday, the regulator confirmed it would launch an investigation into its own decision.

The Fire Radio licence was renewed for 12 years in 2010 on condition the station provided a service on DAB in the TSA. But the DAB service ended on October 31st.

There’s been no official word from Celador but the company will now reignite the DAB slot it once occupied on the NOW Digital mux.

The multiplex recently extended west to cover Dorchester and Weymouth with two new transmitters at Poole and Bincombe Hill. Arqiva will also be switching on a further digital transmitter in Shaftesbury covering the northern part of the area before the end of the year.

The multiplex, which first launched in August 2002, carries BBC Radio Solent, Wave 105, Heart, Capital, Smooth, Gold and now Fire Radio.
