Small scale DAB multiplexes and stations

last updated 22/05/2017

Small scale DAB is a new technology allowing local and niche broadcasters to make their services available to listeners in individual cities or towns. It is currently available in 10 locations in the UK following the conclusion of a successful Ofcom trial. Legislation to make these trials permanent is currently going through Parliament.
