This site further adds to the existing national commercial digital radio coverage in Wales, which was increased in December 2005 with a new transmitter at Blaen-Plwyf.

Preseli is part of a phase of transmitters being turned on by Digital One over the next 12 months. Sites remaining in this phase will continue to extend coverage in Wales and also in East Anglia. Details of these additional sites can be found here.

Digital One holds the only national commercial licence for digital radio, with a network that stretches from Aberdeen to Penzance, and from Bournemouth to Carlisle. Over 85% of the UK population can now receive the national commercial DAB digital radio stations.
