Paul: As far as I know BBC national DAB has never broadcast from St Johns Beacon, only Digital One, MuxCo WCL & Bauer Liverpool.

BBC national DAB will launch from this site by the end of 2015.

Hugh Edgar: Knockmore is on the list of sites for local DAB expansion due to complete by the end of 2016. This should bring the Inverness multiplex to Keith (including BBC Radio Scotland & MFR).

The culture minister Ed Vaizey is due to make a speech about this on Friday morning (6 February) so we should find out more about the timetable then.

@trevorjharrris

Online listening went up by 6% year on year but declined in the final quarter of 2014.

@MikeP

There are already separate listening figures for the internet and DAB. Internet listening is 6% (of all listening) and DAB is 25%. The remaining 7% (approx.) for digital listening is digital TV and unspecified.

MikeP: The 38% is the share of listening via all digital platforms (as a percentage of total listening). The share for FM/AM is 56%. The remaining 6% is unspecified. In Q4 2010 the FM/AM listening share was 67% so it has decreased by 11 percentage points in the last 4 years.

I think the 46% you refer to is the percentage of people who have at least one DAB radio (it's actually 48% now)

Chris Barker: You can only hear 4 of the 11 BBC national stations on FM. Coker Hill will also transmit the Somerset local mux by September 2016, including BBC Somerset.

Digital 1 will also add more transmitters by the end of 2016, but the sites are not yet known. This is unaffected by the Digital 2 bids.

sue: If you do a rescan/autotune these stations should appear. The Sussex DAB multiplex changed frequency to 10B on 9th December.

Hi Jenny, the new national DAB multiplex isn't available in Ipswich unfortunately. You can still listen to Planet Rock via digital TV or online.
