Hot Radio Improvements

We’ve made improvements to Hot Radio to reach more listeners. We will shortly be available on Digital on DAB across Dorset.

We’ve upgraded our transmitter and have turned up the FM power, which means you’ll be able to get Hot Radio clearer than ever before and now in some of those hard to reach areas.
