map is loading, please wait...

The coloured area on the map represents the locations where DAB reception should be possible in a car, or using a DAB receiver where the aerial is above ground-floor level. Those areas showing shaded with bright colour (one colour per DAB frequency) indoor domestic reception even at ground level should be highly reliable: please remember that the receiver aerial position and how fast you are moving can affect reception reliability.

What do the map symbols mean?

fred: Commercial radio is a business and therefore has to pay its way. Therefore stations on Digital 1 are paying for around 160 transmitters to reach around 90% of the UK population, including where you live in Cornwall, and the stations on Digital 2/SDL National have made the business decision to cover 75% of the population from just 45 transmitters at a much lower cost.

The commercial radio and listener-supported radio stations on these two multiplexes have to balance their books so they have to make decisions that enable them to run their operations by either being on Digital 1 or Digital 2.

All the existing stations on Digital 2/SDL would have to agree to pay more for their transmission cost to reach Cornwall. Alternatively you might get some of the stations to place their service on the Cornwall local multiplex as the Wireless Group have done on the Aberdeen local multiplex with talkRADIO, talkSPORT 2 & Virgin Radio. Otherwise wait until a small-scale multiplex is available near to where you live and see if any of the stations that you like can be added as Angel Digital and Chris country have done in other parts of the UK.
