For Stations

Previously DAB airspace in the UK has been operated purely by commercial radio gatekeepers determined to make life difficult for new, potentially rival, entrants. Instead West Sussex Digital’s application is democratising access to the digital airwaves. With no single controlling shareholder or director, and a board made up of charity, community and commercial operators all working together, we’re here to give you a chance of getting on the air. Have you got an existing station that you feel would appeal to West Sussex Audiences?

For Listeners

What’s in it for me? More stations, more music genres, more choice, more local voices and information on the air. Our application will help remove the barriers previously preventing specialist, niche and ultra-local services to operate and entertain you. Why should I support West Sussex Digital’s application? We are 100% local to West Sussex, we are formed of Community, Charity and Commercial stations based in West Sussex and working together to provide a better listening experience for you.
