United Kingdom & the Isle of Man



 Wohnort's symbol for DAB+  Wohnort's symbol for Band III DAB+ is now being used in the UK for services directed at the listening public. Three DAB+ services are broadcast on the new second national commercial ensemble. In addition, there are services broadcasting on the minimuxes in Manchester and Portsmouth. The BBC conducted tests of DAB+ in Scotland during 2014. Generally, however, broadcasting in the UK still uses "original-flavour" DAB transmitted in Band III. A "tick mark" has been launched as a marketing tool to signify receivers that meet a certain minimum specification. DAB+ capability is expected to be one of the requirements for the tick mark. Wohnort recommends, now more than ever, that you should consider buying a receiver that is DAB+ capable even if you never plan to take it out of the country with you. Such a receiver should also be more future-proof than one which only receives DAB.

Future Sites (Step 1): Transmitters listed under this headline are those listed in Annex A of the Framework Agreement on Local DAB expansion. Arqiva and the multiplex operators have commited to complete the work by September 30th 2016. Some transmitters in Annex A have already been brought into service and are therefore no longer listed as Future Sites.

Minimux Trials


 
The UK regulator is to develop plans for the implementation and licensing of small-scale DAB. A low-power trial was run in Brighton during the Autumn of 2012 that demonstrated the feasibility of using software-defined solutions for coding and multiplexing. Ofcom has awarded licences for further trials in 10 areas. Ofcom will report to government in mid-2016 at the conclusion of the trials and make recommendations on a licensing framework.

The following ensembles also cover all or parts of this transmission area:-


Tuning to Block 8A
The frequency allocated to the Aldershot trial lies outside the range of the seven blocks used during the initial UK DAB roll-out. Some older radios may not include Block 8A in their automatic scans. In this case, select the option "Full Scan" in the receiver's menus. This may also be called a "Rest of the World" scan, as opposed to a "UK" scan.
