The two pop-up Christmas services we’ve been broadcasting have come to a close on our Portsmouth DAB+ digital radio multiplex. In their place is Birdsong, the world famous audio recording as used by Classic FM in 1992 and subsequently on national DAB digital radio pop-ups.

Although Christmas is still 12 weeks away, fans of Christmas can get themselves in the festive mood right now with Christmas Angel from Angel Radio. Christmas Angel plays Christmas classics from yesteryear.
Please accept our apologies this week for the outages we’ve had with our transmissions. On Tuesday our transmitter was off for much of the day due to an internet fault that occurred as a result of the bad weather first thing Tuesday morning.
Today our transmitter was on severely reduced power for much of the day to a fault. We’ve made a repair and things are back to normal.
We do our very best to keep things working as they should, but unfortunately we have not had much luck this week. Thank you for your patience during these outages.
Returning to DAB+ digital radio in Portsmouth is News Radio UK. The service provides rolling news, sport, business, showbiz, weather and travel news all day, every day. Retune your radio now to add News Radio UK to your station list.
There have been a number of changes to our station line-up.
On Saturday we said goodbye to Metal Meyhem Radio. The station has decided to come off our Portsmouth DAB multiplex to focus on their Brighton DAB+ coverage and online. We wish them well.
This morning we have added Goldmine. Goldmine are a service that play classic hits from the 1950s to 1980s. To listen to them, rescan your DAB+ radio now.
In other news, The Breeze and Sam FM have converted from DAB to DAB+. This means that older radios may not be able to receive these stations. If you don’t have a DAB+ radio you can buy one from around £20 – just look for the green Digital Radio Tick Mark or DAB+ logo. Failing that, the stations are still broadcast on 107.4 and 106.0 FM respectively.
Finally, stay tuned for further updates as we have two more stations planned to launch very soon.
