Leicester Digital Partnership wins small-scale DAB multiplex licence

Leicester Digital Partnership has been awarded the small-scale DAB multiplex in the city.

By the closing-date of 25 April 2022, Ofcom received two applications for this locality from SubDigital Leicester Limited and Leicester Digital Partnership.

Ofcom noted that all five participants in the Leicester Digital Partnership’s application proposed to provide community digital sound programme services in the locality. Of these, four (St Matthews Community Solution Centre Limited, Kohinoor Media Limited, 2Funky Arts Limited, and Takeover Radio Children’s Media Trust) are existing providers of analogue community radio services in Leicester, and therefore have a particularly good prospect of appearing on the multiplex at launch, while the fifth (Leicester Community Radio 2 CIC) has already been awarded a community digital sound programme licence.

The second application by SubDigital Leicester Limited was headed by Sabras Radio.
