Uckfield Community Radio Ltd has today submitted an Expression of Interest to Ofcom requesting their consideration of an expansion of the Station’s coverage area.
It’s proposed that the towns of Crowborough and Heathfield join the present TSA (Total Survey Area) and an increase in transmitter power, re-siting of the present transmitter or relay transmitter sites are considered by the Regulator.
Uckfield FM commenced full time broadcasts on 01 July 2010.
Mike Ziolek, Managing Director commented: ‘During our 7 years of full time service, we have operated a valuable local asset, proving programming, commercial and technical success over an extended period. We have provided employment and training opportunities and continue to support a wide range of community activities, providing continuous social gain for the area. Importantly, we also offer a distinct, high quality service with no media duplication in the TSA. I look forward to the next phase of our development.’
