Radio Nova expands coverage north of Dublin

Radio NOVA has received permission from the BAI to expand its transmission coverage up the east coast of Ireland.

The station has now built a significant booster station at Balbriggan, to bring its signal even further north of Dublin. The increased coverage, on 100.1 FM, is available to listeners from today, Wednesday April 15th.

Radio Nova CEO Kevin Branigan told RadioToday: “We’ve been eager to expand our coverage for some time and have publicly expressed this in recent months. We now cover even further up the east coast than before, adding tens of thousands of potential new listeners. We are the only Dublin station that extends into the sizeable commuter belt area of Meath, Kildare and Wicklow and we now cover more of this extensive area than before”.

Nova is the only Dublin radio station also licenced to cover the extensive commuter belt region around Dublin, which includes parts of Kildare, Meath and Wicklow.

The station’s new 100.1 FM frequency will give enhanced coverage to people in the region, including the towns of Balbriggan, Skerries, Rush and Lusk. Nova also broadcasts on 100.3 from 3 Rock Mountain, covering Dublin, on 100.5 into Kildare and on 95.7 into Wicklow.
