LONDON�The first of 10small-scale DAB multiplexesto participate in a nine-month test took to the air today, in Brighton, England, reportsradiotoday.co.uk.�

Six programs are available via the multiplex transmission: Juice 107.2, RadioReverb, totallyradio, Smile Sussex, URF Sussex, and Resonance Extra � a �free, creative space for curated broadcasts and sonic arts experimentation.�

�The interesting thing about this approach is that unlike traditional DAB, it�s a low cost point of entry for new broadcasters with the space to experiment and innovate � and that this is not and will never be a viable replacement technology. Perhaps it�s time to abandon the idea of DAB as the universal broadcast solution for radio. At a new democratic price point, the Small Scale trial suggests that it really is time to reinvent DAB as a low-barrier, incremental radio platform,� said the project leader, Juice 107.2 Chairman Daniel Nathan.
