Is this DAB or DAB+ ?

(What's the difference between DAB and DAB+? DAB+ is a more efficient method of broadcasting music and is based on the AAC codec popularised by Apple's iPod. It's more efficient than the old standard that uses MP2 and means a higher quality signal is possible than before.)

Mike Terry: Which radio station are you referring to? DAB and DAB+ stations can co-exist on the same multiplex (as they do on D1 National and SDL, as well as various local multiplexes).

Is this multiplex still broadcasting as my 2 DAB/DAB+ radios cannot find any of the stations listed. I could tune it manually if I knew the MHz they transmit on.

Debs Billings:

The multiplex is on Block 7D: 194.064 MHz. I've just seen a report that is was confirmed as broadcasting on the 18th January 2022. However the list of stations at the top of this page is hopelessly out of date as the site owner doesn't seem to have had time to update it. All the current stations appear to be DAB+ apart from Express FM which is Joint Stereo.
The multiplex licence has apparently been extended until December 31st 2023 but I'm struggling to find the detail on OFCOM's site (like too many things on OFCOM's site I'm afraid - hopeless).
