The current Norwich local DAB multiplex is being moved from its current frequency of VHF Block 11B to VHF Block 10B, as part of a plan to boost local DAB coverage in both Norfolk and around the UK, first announced at the beginning of 2015.
Stations on local DAB including BBC Radio Norfolk, Heart Norfolk and The Beach will be affected by the change, which is due to take place overnight from Tuesday 8th September to Wednesday 9th September 2015.
Between 10pm on Tuesday 8th and 6am on Wednesday 9th, listeners may not be able to receive local services on DAB.
Following the changes, more listeners will be able to receive the local DAB signal in the county, with improved coverage planned for North Walsham and along the A149; Dereham and the A47, as well as parts of Swaffham and Watton.
As a result of the change, listeners with a DAB clock radio will need to make alternative arrangements for Wednesday 9th September: any clock radios set to Norfolk DAB stations will be silent in the morning due to the frequency change.
There will be no changes to national DAB services, nor any radio stations distributed on FM or AM.
