At just before 02:00 this morning Future Digital Norfolk added test transmissions from '45 Radio' to the output of the FDN Trail_Norwich DAB Multiplex. '45 Radio' is the twentieth station in the current line up of services broadcast. This addition marks the first time the FDN Multiplex has been effectively full to capacity since its launch in 2015.

At approximately 08:30 this morning a fault developed in our main DAB transmitter which meant that it was not able to ingest the audio feeds from our various contributing broadcast radio stations. Engineers were unable to resolve the fault remotely and had to visit the transmitter site to affect repairs. All services were broadcasting normally once more by 11:00 AM, the outage lasting approximately 2.5 hours. We are currently working to ensure that this fault does not occur again and we apologise for the loss of transmissions this morning.
