Falkirk & Stirling Multiplex

Central FM is passionate about local radio and has been broadcasting across The Forth Valley for over 33 years covering the 3 main areas of Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire and all the small towns and villages in between.

We launched the Falkirk & Stirling Multiplex for Stirling and Falkirk in November 2023.

We have the latest DAB technology to give local broadcasters a chance to be heard on digital radio in a cost-effective manner.

We also plan to introduce a number of additional Central FM radio stations to our area to enhance the depth and variety of radio listening available.

We are committed to providing a local service to the residents of The Forth Valley ensuring a first class news and travel information service. Our plans will ensure that true local radio in our area continues, and we'll increase listener choice.

Radio stations available on Stirling and Falkirk multiplex:




Small-scale DAB is a new way of transmitting digital radio using software and low-cost computer technology to provide a flexible and inexpensive approach to the terrestrial broadcast of digital radio services.

The system enables services to broadcast to a relatively small geographic area.

Unlike analogue FM radio where only one station can use a frequency, with digital broadcasts a number of stations can be transmitted together on the same frequency. This is called a multiplex. A multiplex can carry between 20 and 30 stations.

The regulator Ofcom is licensing Small Scale DAB services across the UK. The country has been split into areas or “polygons”. A licence to operate the multiplex is being advertised in each polygon.

Our Area is Stirling & Falkirk.

We invite applicants from any Ofcom licensed radio service to register their interest below.
