Ukraine’s National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting is now accepting applications for the four places remaining on the DAB+ multiplex in Kiev.
On March 29, the organization announced that 10 stations had received a DAB+ license after the first round of bids that took place earlier in the year. On April 5, the Council subsequently decided to hold a second call for submissions to fill the four places remaining on the multiplex.
With BRT Concern as the network operator, the DAB+ signal is broadcasting via two transmitters, located in the country’s capital, with a capacity of 2 kW and 1 kW respectively. The Council expects the stations to begin broadcasting during the second half of 2018.
It also said a third transmitter would be installed in Brovary, a city located in the Eastern suburb of Kiev, later this year.
The Council is accepting applications from May 17 to June 15. The results of the tender will be announced August 14.
