Forces radio station BFBS (which identifies on air as Forces Radio BFBS) has removed its Brize Norton version of the station from DAB.
BFBS Brize Norton had held a mono, 80 kbps second slot on the Oxfordshire local DAB multiplex. A reason for the removal is yet to be established, although the FM service continues unchanged.
Meanwhile, BFBS have opted not to take up a license offer from Ofcom for two new community radio services. One was to cover Stafford, whilst the other was to cover Cottesmore and North Luffenham.
BFBS operate a number of radio services aimed at service personnel, both in the UK and overseas. The national version broadcasts on the SDL multiplex in DAB+.
