Frequently Asked Questions...
Can I listen to Minster FM on DAB Digital Radio?
We currently don't broadcast on DAB as there isn't a digital multiplex for local stations in North Yorkshire. At the moment there are only national radio stations and a few local services from neighbouring areas available here on DAB.
A licence to broadcast a local DAB multiplex, to include Minster FM, was awarded by Ofcom in 2007. This has since been put on hold whilst a government review of DAB provision is conducted.
In the mean time, we are fully committed to remaining on FM. Don't feel you're missing out on anything special because we're not on DAB. A strong FM signal provides better sound quality than DAB which 'compresses' the audio in order to squeeze more stations onto each multiplex. Plus around half of DAB stations don't even broadcast in stereo! FM signals are also more reliable when on the move and are much less prone to the signal dropping out.
I'm having trouble listening online. What should I do?
Check that you have the latest version of your audio streaming plugins installed: Windows Media Player (for PC Users) or Flip4Mac (for Mac users). Also, make sure you allow pop-ups / deactivate your pop-up blocker for this site.
