Read this: BBC Wales: Ofcom Welsh Govt push for radio coverage boost

Summary: Acknowledging that the availability of BBC Radio Cymru and BBC Radio Wales is primarily a matter for the BBC, it noted that while FM coverage of BBC Radio Cymru was high, BBC Radio Wales could only reach 81 of households on FM.
