More choice for Selby radio listeners as North Yorks DAB goes on air

Radio listeners across the Selby area have a new way to listen to their local stations this morning as North Yorkshire's DAB transmitter goes live.

BBC Radio York and 104.7 Minster FM are both now able to broadcast to digital radio owners for the first time following the launch of a dedicated digital radio multiplex for England's largest county. The stations are also joined by Stray FM, broadcasting from Harrogate.

Minster FM says it plans to use it's new DAB channel to bring extra, DAB exclusive programmes to the area from early 2015. These programmes will operate under the name 'More Minster'.

BBC Look North's Harry Gration and ITV Calendar's Christine Talbot joined teams from the newly digital stations for the multiplexes official launch.

The new multiplex, essentially a group of stations that are digitally compressed to enable them to share the same signal and transmitter, is transmitting to the Selby area thanks to a new transmitter installed at the Acklam Wold mast in Ryedale. Digital radio owners should hit the rescan button on their radios to ensure they can receive the new stations from today.
