Another 26,000 people now have BBC national DAB in Devon and Co
published on UK Free TV

It might have had the UK's first international satellite earth-station in 1962, but Helston, Cornwall did not have DAB coverage until today.

From today, 13,500 people who live in Helston and the west side of the Lizard peninsular have BBC national DAB reception.

Also, from today, a transmitter at Kingsbridge provides BBC national DAB coverage for the 12,5000 people in the South Hams area of Devon - and helps to solidify coverage between the A38 and the coast around Start Bay, improving reception for another 10,000 people.

Richard: The BBC Project Mayflower report is certainly a very interesting read, not just for DRM but about analogue radio propagation too.

Hello anyone,
Since the returne on 3 Sept I have lost my local BBC radio station on DAB. Has anyone else had this problem in the Exmouth, Devon area?

John: The retune was for TV only, not DAB.
