About

Broadcasting regulator Ofcom has licensed Manchester DAB to deliver digital radio for Manchester and our network of local transmitters will deliver optimal signal coverage throughout the cities of Manchester and Salford reaching over a million people.

Manchester DAB has the expertise, know-how and skills to deliver digital radio for Manchester and we are putting that to good use as we build-out out transmitter network.

A temporary licence allowing use of just a single low-power transmitter had earlier been given to another company. This radio multiplex service will cease operating in the coming months. The new Manchester DAB service will replace it.

Manchester DAB will be open to receive registrations from radio services. Space is limited and we will give preference to those who expressed interest previously and supported out application back in 2021.

Those currently broadcasting on the trial service may also apply and we shall add their service to the list along with others expressing interest in broadcasting to Manchester. Check out our REGISTER page for more details.

Manchester DAB has been formed as an independent locally-led project which seeks to operate for community benefit as the digital audio broadcasting service for the city.
