Lincoln radio station off-air until further notice

Community station Siren Radio is currently off-air due to a transmitter fault.

A message on the station’s website says: “Siren Radio is off-air until further notice due to a fault with our transmitter. We hope to have this resolved as soon as we can. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter pages for further updates.”

It also appears that the online stream for the station, which is based at and funded by the University of Lincoln, is also offline.

Andrew M. Wilson David, Managing Editor, told RadioToday: “It’s disappointing, especially for our team of dedicated programme makers and presenters, to have transmitter issues. So we’re doing all we can to fix things as quickly as possible.

“It’s always a great help when you have immediate support from Ofcom, and I’m very lucky at Siren Radio to have an excellent team who always do everything they can to help. Also, being able to consult expert friends and colleagues in the supportive Community Radio sector means that we can have every confidence we’ll be back on air soon.”

Siren FM started broadcasting in July 2007 catering for a young audience, and rebranded as Siren Radio with a slogan of A Fresh Sound for Lincoln in 2017.
