Biel/Bienne, 10.04.2012 - Digital radio in Switzerland is being further expanded. The Federal Office of Communications (OFCOM) has awarded the company SwissMediaCast AG (SMC) the radio licence for operating a new digital DAB+ transmitter network. The network consists of seven coverage areas in German-speaking Switzerland and enables the radio stations to target their programme services at a regional audience. Furthermore, the SRG SSR will also be able to transmit its regional news journal in digital form. Construction of the first coverage area will take place in November 2012.
