Join us on DAB from February 2022
We are delighted to be bringing proper local radio back to Harrogate on ‘proper radio’ from Thursday 3rd February 2022.
We’ll be broadcasting on the North Yorkshire DAB multiplex using the latest DAB+ technology.
You’ll be able to find us listed in your station list by our name – just search ‘Your Harrogate’ and tune in!
Depending on your radio you might need to do a ‘rescan’ to find us the first time.
Whilst some older DAB digital radios might only receive DAB stations, the majority of newer devices can receive DAB+ stations as well as DAB, and there are lots of DAB/DAB+ radios available which will give you access to DAB and DAB+ stations.
To receive DAB+ stations you must have a DAB+ enabled radio. The simplest way to be sure is to look for the Digital Radio Tick Mark on the radio or its packaging. All radios that bear that Tick Mark are able to receive FM, DAB and DAB+ stations.
If you are buying a new digital radio, look for the Digital Radio Tick Mark as this means the radio is DAB+ enabled and will receive the available DAB, DAB+ and FM radio stations. If the product does not have the Tick Mark, then read the product description carefully and check that it specifies DAB+.
