Testing the transmitter

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..
