BBC adds new DAB transmitters for Warwickshire, Cotswolds and Weston-super-Mare
It is part of the BBC's commitment to roll-out national DAB across over 160 extra transmitter sites by the end of next year, in a fourth phase of DAB coverage expansion.
Moving from north to south, the new Leamington Spa transmitter in Warwickshire will provide coverage to an additional 1,700 households, and improve reception for a further 44,000 households.
For parts of the Cotswolds around Stow-on-the-Wold, the Icomb Hill DAB transmitter puts another 2,500 households into BBC national DAB coverage and improves reception for another 6,700 householders.
And reception in the Weston-super-Mare area via the transmitter at Hutton expands reception to another 2,200 households around the seaside resort and improves reception for a further 65,000 households.
The BBC National DAB multiplex contains all of the BBC's national radio stations and broadcasts on VHF Block 12B. BBC Local Radio coverage is unaffected by the national DAB roll-out.
