Ofcom: small-scale DAB trial promises a local radio revolution

Ofcom has today published its final report for Government on trials of ‘small-scale DAB’, an innovative technology designed to allow local stations to achieve transmission on digital radio.

Ofcom has been testing small-scale DAB since June 2015, with 70 local stations broadcasting on trial licences around the UK.

The technique allows local and community stations to hit the airwaves using freely-available software and equipment costing from £9,000.

Ofcom has also identified space in the airwaves that could support a UK-wide roll out of the technology, using spectrum bands previously occupied by business radio.

Re-using these bands could pave the way for hundreds more stations to join digital radio across the UK.
