Local DAB heading to Surrey in December

Listeners in Surrey will be able to tune into their local radio stations via DAB digital radio from December 2013.

Multiplex operator Muxco announced today that it had signed the contract with their transmission subcontractor, paving the way for the proposed end of year launch.

Surrey's local DAB multiplex will initially carry BBC Sussex, plus Eagle Radio and Eagle Extra. Redstone FM has also been confirmed in the launch line-up.

Muxco is inviting listeners to analogue radio stations in the area not in the launch line-up to contact the relevant radio station encouraging them to sign up for DAB distribution in the county.

Muxco Surrey will broadcast from transmitters in Crystal Palace, Guildford, Reigate, Leatherhead and Hungry Hill, although locations are still subject to change.

Other local DAB multiplexes scheduled to launch before the end of 2013:
Herefordshire & Worcestershire
Mid and West Wales
