More FM stations for London
Ofcom has made available extra FM frequencies in the capital for Community Radio stations, following the closure of several commercial stations.
In an official document published by Ofcom today, the radio regulator has replaced a previous invite for groups to apply for either FM or AM licences in London and other areas within the M25.
The extra four frequencies have been made available because of the [link=https://radiotoday.co.uk/e107_plugins/wrap/wrap.php?23]closures[/link] of services in Lewisham (South 107.3), Thamesmead (Time 106.8), High Wycombe and Amersham (both Mix 107).
The re-publication of the invite suggests more than four new stations may be licensed, with a second station using the same clear frequency outside of the M25.
