South Glos Digital CIC Small Scale DAB


South Glos Digital CIC, owned by the successful South Gloucestershire community radio station, Thornbury Radio, has been awarded the Ofcom small-scale DAB licence for the region.

Thornbury Radio already covers 45,000 people in and around Thornbury and has 15 volunteers working together at the station.

The group has been planning and in discussions locally for several months and is beginning to assemble the proposed line-up of services and planned coverage area. The proposed DAB coverage region covers a large part of the South Gloucestershire area, along with the crossroads of the M4 and M5 corridors.

TMCIC have brought in Nick Piggott from Muxnet as technical consultant and technical provider.

David Wrench, Director of Thornbury Media Community Interest Company said, “Not only will we be building on the success of Thornbury Radio on FM, the local DAB technology will extend our coverage and bring more choice to the communities of South Gloucestershire.”

TMCIC are currently looking for any radio service, local, regional, or national that might be interested in expressing an interest in broadcasting to this area of South Gloucestershire. The proposed DAB service area covers listeners in and around Thornbury, Yate and Almondsbury.
