Changes on D1 (DAB)

Post by midlandsfirst »

Source - Ofcom Radio Broadcast Update March 2013

Addition of Team Rock:
A Rock Music based radio station broadcasting a large and diverse range of specialist rock artists and genres. No more than 50% of the music during daytime will come from songs that have entered the UK Top 50 singles chart or can be reasonably termed as Classic Rock. The station will showcase the full range and breadth of the Rock genre across the week including a wide number of specialist programmes

Absolute Radio 80s: change from stereo to mono
Planet Rock: change from stereo to mono
(assume both are to make room for Team Rock as D1 is apparently full)

DAB - a big step forward.........oops.....shouldnt that be step backwards........

And thats before they have to shoehorn the MXR stations onto the local multiplexes come August. May as well start placing your bets now which stations on the Birmingham and Wolverhampton multiplexes get dropped to mono or a lower bitrate....

BBC 128k MP2 (DAB) vs 128k AAC (Net) - I see no competition :)

I must dig out a MD of Radio 1 from DAB when it was 192k MP2 on DAB with no audio processing....

Yeah DAB a total waste of time now, never bother with it now even in the car. Unlimited data and a little FM TX in the car put pay to that idea a long time ago.
