British military to end national DAB transmissions

BFBS will continue on FM, satellite and online.
Forces radio station BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Service) will come off the national digital radio multiplex Digital One in March after carrying out analysis over the costs. The station says to RadioToday that it can no longer justify the cost of the platform, but the radio service will continue as normal with no job losses.

The finance for Forces Radio on D1 was provided charitable resources as the station carries no commercial advertising.

BFBS operates a number of international stations plus various local community FM stations across the UK. Also via UK mediumwave (AM) transmitter. BFBS Radio will also continue on satellite and online.
