Listen on Digital Radio

You can listen to UCB 1 and UCB 2 on DAB radio across the UK, wherever there is a DAB signal (you'll need to check that your DAB radio is DAB+ compatible). Digital (DAB) radios are available (starting from around £30) from most electrical retailers and larger supermarkets. Unlike the older style analogue radios, they’re tuned alphabetically, so UCB 1 and UCB 2 doesn’t have a radio frequency. Plug in your DAB radio and scroll to the ‘U’ section until you find us. If you're not sure if you can receive DAB where you live, check the Postcode checker here to see which UCB stations you can get in your area: https://getdigitalradio.com
