Revival now on DAB digital radio across Glasgow

Revival now on DAB digital radio across Glasgow

From Thursday 2 May, Revival FM commenced broadcasting on the DAB digital radio waveband across most of Glasgow city.

Some DAB digital radio do not require a retune or rescan and will automatically display Revival on the receiver or in the car. If not, select “Rescan” or “Retune” and in the alphabetical list of radio station services, select Revival when it is displayed.

Revival is being carried on the Ofcom Trial Glasgow Small-scale DAB digital radio multiplex which is transmitting on Block 10B, frequency 211.648 MHz from a single transmission site close to the Cathkin Braes.

A second transmitter to improve reception in Glasgow city centre and surrounds is awaiting clearance from regulator Ofcom. When that transmitter goes to air, that will form a Single Frequency Network (SFN). This will then provide a robust Glasgow city wide DAB+ service from the multiplex.


This is the display on a Roberts portable DAB/DAB+/FM radio. You may have to do a full scan or auto scan for the radio to pick-up and display Revival. Once available and on display, please select and save as a pre-set favourite.

Revival FM is transmitting using the improved DAB+ digital radio AAC codec system in stereo.

This DAB+ transmission joins the existing Revival 93FM Glasgow service which commenced programming at Easter.


As an example, Revival on display on a Vauxhall Corsa car.
Some cars auto tune and when you go to the station list, scroll down until you see Revival and select and then make Revival on DAB as a pre-set favourite.
Otherwise, you may need to tune in manually to Block 10B / 211.648 MHz by using Seek, Tune or use the Menu. Most car displays have these functions.
You can then listen to Revival in crystal clear stereo.
When out of range of the DAB reception area, the car radio will automatically tune to the 93FM analogue frequency for continuity of service.

Revival 93FM now on-air across Glasgow

Revival 93FM now on-air across Glasgow

Revival FM has officially commenced licensed broadcasting across Glasgow on 93.0 FM following engineering tests and the installation of the FM transmitter system and broadcast antenna at a Glasgow city centre location.

This brings the Revival FM programme service of ‘Heart & Soul’ radio to Scotland’s biggest city – Glasgow.

It was on 9 May 2018 that broadcasting regulator Ofcom announced the award of an FM licence to Revival FM (Glasgow) which will be a community radio service offering a Christian perspective for listeners in Glasgow.

This follows a formal licence application to Ofcom in October 2017.

Director Andrew Polson says: “Revival FM on 93FM was launched at our Easter Celebration presentation on Easter Sunday, 21 April, at a full Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. It was very fitting the launch was on Easter Sunday, a day of celebration and the rise of a new Revival FM programme service to the people of the city of Glasgow and surrounding area.”

100.8 Revival FM continues as normal to provide a service to Cumbernauld, Kilsyth, Kirkintilloch and surround areas as it has done since September 2006.

TUNING IN NOTE: To Glasgow and surround area, Revival transmits on 93.0 MHz FM. This is a part of the FM waveband which has the BBC radio services and is called the ‘BBC sub-band’. Revival on 93FM can be found on the dial between BBC Radio 3 on 92.1 FM and BBC Radio Scotland on 94.3 FM.
