Thats Solent
Monday 7 April 2014 4:56PM

What's happened to the That's Solent start date of June 28th? It appears it has now been pushed back for the second time to December 28th. Will this station ever appear and what about a statement from the organisers or management? London Life TV has started on time on March 28th so what is the problem with the station down here?

LONDON LIVE
Sunday 27 April 2014 10:00AM

I think the problem with local tv in general is that there is no national coordination to enable local coverage around the nation to start at around the same time so that there is not an enormous time gap between the starting dates of all the local stations to cover the main population areas of the U.K. London already has London Live whereas the Solent area now has to wait for a third deferment for That's Solent now due to start in December 2014. Where is the coordination?

Why is there apparently not a single domestic portable radio on the market that incorporates DAB, FM and AM on the market and seemingly is only available for the vehicle market?

The problem with DAB transmissions regarding the broadcasters is that there is a higher charge for those stations broadcasting in stereo so that consequently those community stations such as Angel Radio from Havant using DAB to increase their very limited FM coverage can only afford to use mono DAB transmissions. This also applied to national Jazz FM who could only afford to rent space on mono and who now having given up their allocation nationally to LBC from London. DAB should be made more affordable by a reduction in operating charges to the stations using their services.
