Workshops to offer free advice for Small Scale applicants

A number of DAB Workshops are planned in various parts of the UK to help anyone planning to apply for a Small Scale DAB multiplex licence.

The events, organised by small-scale DAB specialist Viamux, and supported by RadioToday, will provide
practical help and advice to stations, groups and individuals interested in launching their own multiplex.

Sessions will cover the licence application process, transmission planning and funding options. There will also be a live demonstration of software-defined radio and an insight on how to find suitable partner stations for your multiplex.

“There’s a lot to cover”, says Viamux Director, David Duffy, “but our aim is to demystify the process and provide reassurance that the technology is reliable, easy to manage and, most importantly, affordable even for the smallest of organisations”.

RadioToday’s Editor and Founder Roy Martin adds: “Small-Scale DAB is the next big thing for UK radio so we think it’s important that as much information as possible is available to anyone thinking of getting involved.

“These events will let people know how realistic it is to apply for and run a multiplex.”

The first phase of the tour will take-in Belfast on Saturday 14th September, Edinburgh on Saturday 28th September and Newcastle-Upon-Tyne on Saturday 5th October. You can reserve a place by completing the online form here.
