New National DAB Testing

I'm getting Soundwaves and Soundwaves+ here off the new national multiplex.

Interesting that Soundwaves+ is in DAB+, which I think is a first.

Planet Rock plugging "the big retune" on 1st March. Expect the usual shitstorm on their fb from people in Kent, Norfolk, Cornwall, Wales and Scotland who can't understand why they have no coverage of a national station...and the usual petitions to "bring Planet Rock back to xxxx"

Talk Sport 2, talkRADIO and Virgin Radio still to commence trade tests. Still showing as Sound Waves 1, 2, 3. Sound Waves 3 is 80K Mono so assume that Virgin Radio, and Sounds Waves 1&2 which are 64K Mono are the two talk stations


Heart Extra to launch 29 February on Digital1. In what has to be the biggest waste of a national frequency in my opinion, it will start the day with the Jamie Theakston/Emma Bunton Heart 106.2 London breakfast show. The station will play non-stop music 9am till 7pm then simulcast Heart London again.
