Ludlow DAB

Post by Dave »

Murfin Media have won the Ludlow/Leominster/Tenbury DAB by default; no other bidders.

150 watts from the Clee Hill site, only two services at launch, Sunshine and Wyvern

Plenty of entertainment for the livestock then.

42,000 adults on patch apparently. This is only going to fly because they own the Clee Hill TX Site...

Can't agree with this.
The only time I listen to fm now is to bandscan the pirates. If I have the radio on then it's dab all the time, or Apple Music mostly.

I'd rather just find the station's stream and listen online instead of using DAB - the bitrate is usually beyond shite on most multiplexes (and mono too for a lot of stations), and that horrible gurgly sound when the reception breaks down... I listen to FM in the car (but that's because my car is pretty much an antique :lol: )

Funny that you should say that, up until last weekend I'd not really been able to do that around by me, my network was pretty awful and only really covered by a EE, who I refused to use. I sort of bit the bullet and went Plusnet Mobile last weekend so now I have data coverage locally. So the last two days I've gone to and from my employment hovel while streaming rather than DABing.
Although for the last decade it's been dab.
