ZURICH�In July of 2013 the Swiss Office of Communications (�BAKOM”) licensed a new company known as Digris AG to build local DAB+ networks in Zurich, Geneva and Bern. Because their coverage areas are purposefully small, and the three cities” networks are not connected, these low power multiplexes have become known as �DAB islands.”

The islands were created with the help of the Swiss Government, and now the cost to each �station” on the mux is about 800 Euros (about $1050) per month.

Last week, test broadcasts started on the local Zurich �island” and soon power is expected to be increased. There are now 48 Swiss radio stations available via DAB+ in Zurich, according to Those stations include Planet 105, Tropic Radio, Radio Industry, Lora, Kanal K, Backstage Radio, Spoon Radio, Radio 74, Stadt Filter,, Toxic FM, Radio X, and Traxx FM.
