We are interested in hearing from anyone who would like to operate a Ramadan service on the following DAB multiplexes during June and July 2014:
- Bradford & Huddersfield
- Central Scotland (Edinburgh & Glasgow)
- Herefordshire & Worcestershire
- Mid & West Wales
- Stoke on Trent
- Surrey & South London
- Wrexham, Chester & Liverpool
Interested parties are invited to answer this questionnaire, after which we will discuss opportunities to contract for capacity for up to 28 days on each available multiplex.
Please fill in the questionnaire by 5pm on 31st March 2014
All contracts for capacity are subject to the availability of suitable capacity on each multiplex. If there are multiple expressions of interest, and more demand for capacity than is available, we will select services on the basis of ability to enter a standard carriage contract rather than first come basis.
We intend to notify interest parties in April.
Any questionnaire submissions that are received after the date specified above, will still be considered for a licence, but subject to capacity availability.
The fee to broadcast on any of the multiplexes will be £2,000+VAT for the 28 days, subject to contract, and you will be required to get your signal to the multiplex centre (which we can describe in more detail after submission of the form).
All successful service providers are reminded that they will need to hold the necessary DSP licence from Ofcom and comply with the requirements of the Ofcom Broadcasting Code, in particular if they wish to broadcast charity appeals and must take reasonable steps to satisfy itself that the charity appeal organisation concerned can produce satisfactory evidence of charitable status, or, in the case of an emergency appeal, that a responsible public fund has been set up to deal with it.
