Aug 1, 2013 - Digital radio coverage has been extended to nearly a quarter of a million people in the Heads of the Valleys area of south Wales, according to the BBC.
Four new digital radio transmitters will cover Merthyr Tydfil, Abergavenny, Aberdare and Ebbw Vale. The transmitters are part of wider plans by Digital Radio UK to bring digital radio to 400,000 extra homes in Wales over the summer.
Listeners will be able to receive BBC Radio Wales and Radio Cymru as well as some commercial stations. At the end of August, new digital transmitters are expected to add a further 150,000 households in Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.
