Derby Digital Radio tests have commenced
The tests are on VHF block 10B, but may not be on air all the time.
The Arqiva-operated multiplex will be the last local DAB multiplex to go on air in the Midlands. Previously, Derbyshire DAB listeners have had to rely on sometimes patchy out- of-area reception from Nottingham, Leicester, South Yorkshire or the West Midlands for DAB reception of stations such as Capital, Heart and Gold.
Arqiva is expected to announce more information, including the official launch date, soon.
