Date Announced for Panjab Radio Frequency Switch

Panjab Radio will switch MW (AM) frequencies with Love Sport on 1st August. Panjab Radio will take over the 558 MW frequency, enabling the station to expand to cover the whole of the Greater London area.

This allows Panjab Radio to match the coverage of its rival stations Lyca Radio and Sunrise Radio. Panjab Radio is also available on the SDL National DAB multiplex.

Meanwhile, Love Sport will take over the 1584 MW frequency and reduce coverage to focus on North London. However, due to the nature of MW transmission, some listeners outside North London may still be able to receive the station, albeit with a considerably weaker signal.

DAB and Frequency Updates

Panjab Radio and Love Sport have been given permission to swap trans miters and frequencies from Ofcom. Panjab Radio will take over the 588 MW (AM) frequency and expand its coverage to the whole of Greater London. Meanwhile Love Sport will reduce its coverage area to serve the North London on the 1548 MW (AM) frequency. Both stations are also available on DAB (London 3 for Love Sport and SDL National for Panjab Radio).

On DAB, Cyber Radio has replaced MCR Live on the Trial Manchester multiplex. Revival 93FM has joined the Trial Glasgow multiplex, using the sub standard 24 kbps DAB+ format, and Classic Hits has the joined the Trial Bristol multiplex using 48 kbps DAB+. As all three of these stations use the DAB+ format, only newer DAB+ radios can receive these stations.
