Some good news arrived from OFCOM today. Many months ago we applied for their permission to increase the power of our FM transmission to improve our coverage and today they said yes!
Our current transmitter is capable of providing a higher power signal to our antenna so this improvement will be cost free. The higher power signal will improve reception in areas where the signal is currently weak because of geography like Marshalswick and Bricket Wood but OFCOM's estimated coverage map suggests it will also expand our coverage area to some parts of places like Harpenden, Redbourn and Welwyn Garden City where our signal hardly reaches now. Let's hope this will encourage more people to listen and more advertisers to come on board!
We will be increasing our marketing in all areas once the power increase takes effect. We need to get an OFCOM engineer on site to certify the changes so it will be a few weeks before this will happen. But we will tell you when it does!
