Improved DAB+ indoor and in-car Revival reception across Glasgow

Nation Broadcasting has successfully upgraded its DAB digital radio multiplex in Glasgow, with the launch of a second transmitter located in Glasgow city centre on Thursday 6 June 2019.

The new signal now synchronises with the first transmitter to create a Single Frequency Network (SFN). The improvement will boost coverage in and around the city centre, as well as to the north and west.

Ash Elford, DAB Platform Manager at Nation Broadcasting, said: “In a short space of time, Nation has turned around the fortunes of the Glasgow DAB trial multiplex. We’ve invested behind the scenes in new equipment and new telecoms. This included switching to the world leading Factum Radioscape Enmuxa platform for DAB multiplexing in November 2018. Nation is now realising its ambition of giving Glasgow a DAB multiplex it deserves, with improved coverage and an improved choice of stations.”

The multiplex currently broadcasts 21 services, including Revival FM and a range of Glasgow community radio stations and several special interest services. The multiplex now has a waiting list, with more services planned, subject to Ofcom approval.

Revival is carried on the DAB digital radio multiplex with transmission at 24 kbts DAB+ stereo codec HE-AAC v2. For manual tuning: Block 10B frequency 211.648 MHz

Portables and in-car have auto-tune functions, so simply press or select Auto tune or Scan for services. Some sets require to hold the Auto Tune/Scan for a couple of seconds to do a full scan of all services available in the area.

Listen to Revival on DAB+ for a better listening experience.
