As you may have noticed if you have DAB and are in the area, we have some test transmissions going out – these are on four channels from two transmitters: Kilvey Hill and Carmel.
We are currently on track to launch at 0001 on Friday 30th August with the seven planned services which will include our third transmitter at Preseli. The formal launch is next Friday (6th Sept).
Launch services are as follows:
- Radio Pembrokeshire
- Radio Carmarthenshire
- Nation Hits
- Nation Radio
- Real Radio
- BBC Wales
- BBC Cymru
So did the launch happen as planned? I’ve not seen any media coverage, which is unusual.
Hi Andy, formal launch is next Friday when we’ll be doing all of that.
Will Greenhill be on air before 6th September?
It will launch in 2014.
Your Mid & West Wales multiplex can be received in the Aberystwyth area but is intermittent and very patchy.
When will you be firing up transmitters in Mid Wales, and in particular the Blaenplwyf transmitter which serves a large area and a significant population?
There is a plan for a Blaenplwyf transmitter in the second phase of this multiplex. I’m afraid we don’t have any indicative dates for this one at the moment. We will update the website when we do.
So does that mean ‘2014 maybe’ or even further in the future? And what/when other transmitters are planned for Mid Wales?
