Our Services

We broadcast radio stations on DAB+ digital radio to the City of Portsmouth.

To listen to the services we are broadcasting to Portsmouth, you’ll need to rescan your radio. To rescan your radio, most radio sets have an ‘Autotune’ or ‘Scan’ button, which you press to do this. If you don’t have such a button, you may find this option in the menu.

All of our services (except Express FM) are broadcast in DAB+. This means radios that do not support DAB+ will be unable to find this service. As a guide, look for the DAB+ logo or green Digital Radio tick mark to be certain of a radio that supports DAB+.
