Red Rose Radio – Local radio, made by local people, for the local community.
We’ll be on DAB+ covering Lancashire very soon.
This will allow us to reach more than 370,000 local listeners.
ARE YOU IN OUR AREA?
You may not be within our DAB+ area – and signals are not as good on the move in some areas. Sadly, this is beyond our control.
IS YOUR RADIO AN OLDER SET?
We are broadcasting using the newer DAB+ technology which some older DAB sets may not receive. They may display our name but annoyingly still not play our station!
New sets are available at affordable prices, delivering a much wider range of stations. Do check that the one you’re thinking about is DAB+ compatible – look out for the tick mark. All new cars sold are now equipped with DAB+.
YOU MAY NEED TO RE-SCAN!
Some radio sets just need a quick refresh to find new stations. Just press ‘scan/auto-scan’ or ‘search/auto-tune’ on your radio, then see us on the list.
If we do – select our name and enjoy!
If your radio doesn’t have a ‘scan/auto-scan’ or ‘search/auto’ button, press the ‘menu’ button, scroll through the options and you should see an option labelled something like that. Select that!
If that doesn’t help, a full-scan may help. This time, press and hold down the ‘scan/auto-scan’ or ‘search/auto-button until the scan begins. Or, again, you may need to press the menu to implement the full-scan.
