eagle3 confirmed for DAB in Surrey

DAB multiplex operator MuxCo has confirmed that new station eagle3 will be joining its forthcoming local multiplex for Surrey.

The multiplex is due to launch in December.

eagle3, from UKRD, joins 96.4 Eagle Radio on the multiplex and will be a youth-skewed station.

According to the station, "eagle3 will broadcast emerging artists and provide a platform for local talent."

eagle3 will also launch online, on mobile and tablet app as well as on local DAB digital radio.

Eagle Radio is currently raising awareness among potential advertisers of its forthcoming DAB service, with seminars being held at locations across its broadcast area, where businesses will be helped to tap into two million potential listeners via local DAB digital radio, as well as through the new eagle3 station.

Other stations confirmed as launching on the Surrey DAB multiplex are:
  • BBC Radio Surrey
  • Redstone FM
  • 96.4 Eagle FM

The multiplex will broadcast from transmitters at Crystal Palace, Guildford and Reigate intially, with a second phase of transmitter switch-ons due in the future at Leatherhead and Hungry Hill.

MuxCo Surrey was due to launch across both Surrey and Sussex. Revised plans now mean that North Sussex will in the future be served by local radio through the current Sussex Coast multiplex, which will be expanded northwards to cover the whole county. Timescales for this change are still unknown.
