There have been many ways used to create “test transmissions” on UK radio stations – the output broadcast on a service before it officially launches.
Some played montages of music.
Some play the output of other radio stations.
Some played Birdsong.
Jack FM in Oxford are doing it a little differently as they prepare for the launch of the new Oxford DAB Multiplex – by broadcasting a short history of Oxford. It’s running in simulcast on all 5 Oxfordshire DAB channels as the test signal and the multiplex launches Friday 21/12/2012
It’s easy to the same as everyone else – this is a great way of creating a local buzz and maybe boosting local pride a bit too..
Take a listen..
