Digital Radio for Bristol

We’re working together to bring more digital radio stations to Bristol.

Bristol Digital Radio CIC is a consortium of Ujima Radio, BCfm and Bradley Stoke Radio. We’ve applied together for a Small Scale Digital Radio licence to bring more digital radio to the City of Bristol.

If we’re successful then all the existing community and student radio stations will be available on digital radio, plus brand new radio stations. Our not-for-profit model will provide financial support for community radio in the city.

You can read our application on the OFCOM website. If you’d like to support our application, then you can email smallscaledab@ofcom.org.uk by 31st January.

Our Proposed Coverage Area

If you’re interested in putting a radio station on our multiplex, then email us : hello@bristoldigitalradio.org or call us on 0117 405 4054.

Bristol Trial

We’ve been running a trial of digital radio for about the last 5 years. That will be replaced by the permanent licence when it’s awarded. Until then, you can find out about our Stations, our Current Coverage, and About Us.
