BBC Radio Solent
BBC Radio Solent is a public digital radio station radio. UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

Just got a new DAB radio (I live near Petersfield) and cannot pick up Digital Radio Solent - only get it on FM.
When will we get the DAB signal as the TV picks it up?

Roy: if you had given an indication of the location where you wish to listen to Radio Solent on DAB, preferably with a postcode or that of a nearby shop, advice with a greater degree of accuracy could be offered. Roughly speaking the service on 96.1Mhz FM is transmitted on DAB block 11C (South Hampshire) and the 103.8Mhz FM service is found on DAB block 11B ( Bournemouth). Additionally the coverage of Radio Solent on Freeview for TV viewers has been extended over a much larger area than that covered by FM or DAB.

David: Hi, David in Petersfield. Your nearest DAB radio transmitters are Midhurst, Truleigh Hill (South Downs Way) and Chillerton Down (Isle of Wight). Of these transmitters, only Chillerton Down carries Radio Solent on the South Hants local multiplex, which is on VHF Band III Block ( or channel)11C. In Petersfield, you are 'expected' to listen to BBC Sussex rather than Solent, and that is on the Sussex local Mux, which is on VHF Band III Block ( or channel) 10B. If an auto-scan should fail to pick up Solent, you could try a manual scan on 11C. Don't forget that you can now get BBC Radio Solent on Freeview television now, on Freeview channel 722 in your area, although you might have to do a Freeview retune for it to appear on your EPG! Hope this helps, Richard, Norwich, Tuesday 14th. June at 5:30 p.m.
