Boom Radio broadcasts across most of the UK on DAB.
Just scroll through the list of stations and you should see us under 'B' for Boom! With DAB, you don't need to know any frequencies.
Can’t see our station on the list?
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.
SEEING US BUT NOT HEARING US?
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 now available at affordable prices, delivering a much wider range of stations. Do check the one you're thinking about is DAB+ compatible - look out for the tick mark. All new cars sold are now equipped with DAB+.
In London only - we are on-air in both DAB and DAB+, so just try both to see which is best for you.
STILL HAVING PROBLEMS?
You may not be within our DAB UK area – and signals are not as good on the move in some areas. Sadly, this is beyond our control. Here's the postcode checker to see whether your area is covered.
THERE'S STILL ONE MORE ANSWER!
Luckily, wherever you are – you can hear us online – on your smart speaker, phone, tablet or PC/laptop.
In your car, here are some further options.
