About Us

Cambridge Digital Radio operates the trial DAB Digital Radio multiplex for Cambridge city and the immediately surrounding area.

We’re owned by a consortium that includes Star Radio, the commercial radio station for Cambridge and Ely.

DAB Digital Radio is a new way of broadcasting that offers hiss and crackle-free sound, an easy way to tune to your favourite station by name rather than number, as well as a wide range of services of digital-only stations.

About The Small Scale DAB Trials

Cambridge Digital Radio was one of ten groups granted a pilot licence by Ofcom, the broadcasting regulator, for a smaller DAB multiplex; the other areas taking part in the trial were Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Glasgow, London, Manchester, Norwich, Portsmouth and Woking.

In 2021, we were awarded the full-time smallscale DAB multiplex licence for Cambridge and plans are well advanced for a full launch in spring 2022. In the meantime, we continue to broadcast on our trial frequency.

Cambridge Digital Radio provides the platform – or multiplex – for stations to broadcast on, rather than operating the services ourselves. Think of us as the landlord of a house (the multiplex) and the individual radio stations as tenants, renting rooms (capacity) in our house.

We use two synchronised transmitters, one located at the Gog Magog site south of Cambridge, with the other in the city centre on top of the Catholic Church at the junction of Hills Road and Lensfield Road.
