Event description
February's CMA Community Radio Sector Meeting features Steve Buckley presenting The Community DAB Handbook, a new community radio resource.

About this event

Our February Community Radio Sector Meeting features Steve Buckley from Shefcast, the new SSDAB multiplex for Sheffield & Rotherham that launches later this year.

Steve has been working with Lawrie Hallett of Future Digital Norfolk and the Community Media Association to create The Community DAB Handbook.

The Community DAB Handbook is designed to provide an introduction to Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) for community media organisations, community businesses, and social entrepreneurs. The Handbook has been produced in the context of the rollout of small-scale DAB across the UK and the opportunity this new tier of digital broadcasting presents as a valuable community asset and as a platform for community digital sound programming services.

The Handbook explains the background to DAB, the relevance of community ownership models, and the new legal and regulatory framework for small-scale DAB. It provides practical guidance on business modelling, including consortium building, legal structures, technical design, market assessment, and financial planning. It sets out how to prepare a compelling application for a licence to operate a small-scale DAB service and it provides further advice on getting from licence award to launch and operational management thereafter.

The Community DAB Handbook has been produced by the Community Media Association, with the support of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. It is intended to be kept up to date as a sourcebook of good practice, taking account of feedback from users and practitioners as well as technical and regulatory developments.

This session on The Community DAB Handbook will start at 12pm on Saturday 26th February.

Register for the event today and we look forward to seeing you on the call.
