Cambridge small-scale DAB multiplex launches
UKRD’s minimux for Cambridge is switched on today and the group says it is looking forward to “thoroughly testing” how effective this new initiative is.
“We’re delighted to have been given the opportunity to test this new type of DAB multiplex and it’ll be interesting to see how everything functions and operates,” said Chief Executive William Rogers.
“Clearly it’s far too early to get any sense as to whether this represents a solution to the many serious issues facing smaller local commercial stations resulting from this whole DAB project but we hope this initiative may start to address some of them and potentially assist in gaining an insight into the options open to operators such as ourselves,” he continued.
The multiplex launches with five services being broadcast – they are UKRD’s local station, Star Radio, community radio station Cambridge 105, Chris Country, Gaydio and student station Core Radio.
