DAB Digital Radio - *Coming 2021*
We expect to be broadcasting to the North East on DAB Digital radio later in 2021. We will post all updates here. 

OFCOM, the broadcasting regulator, is currently awarding multiplex licences for Small Scale DAB Radio to multiplex operators. These licences mean that independent radio stations like ours can be brought to more people through DAB Digital Radio. 
The licence award process is currently underway for areas of Newcastle & Gateshead. There is currently no set date for Small Scale DAB Radio licences across Durham, however we are watching developments closely. 

You can support Small Scale DAB across County Durham by contacting OFCOM on and showing your support for SS-DAB licences across Durham.
