DAB transmissions commenced on Friday afternoon (September 11, 2015).
Our transmissions can be heard across the city centre, Milton, Fulbourn, Hinxton, Thriplow, Haslingfield and Grantchester.
If you have a DAB radio you can get ready by retuning or scanning your receiver to pick up the new Cambridge multiplex.
We’re part of a nationwide trial designed to enable small scale stations such as Cambridge 105 to broadcast on the next generation platform that has previously been the preserve of the major broadcasting groups.
You’ll still be able to hear Cambridge 105 on 105MHz FM, online at cambridge105.co.uk and the RadioPlayer app.
For the Cambridge trial Cambridge 105 has joined forces with UKRD, the company behind local station Star Radio, for the only split site test in the country. It uses Cambridge 105’s site at the OLEM church on Hills Road and the Star Radio facility at the Gog Magog Hills to broadcast a multiplex of stations, all of them new to DAB in Cambridge. One of the features of DAB is that it can reuse the same frequencies at relatively short distances.
