IDetails of 12C_South_East_Wales DAB multiplex

Just a quick question. I notice on the application to move frequency and extend the coverage are of S E Wales DAB now digital quoted transmission powers for aberdare abergavenny and Ebbw vale as 36 watts each and Mendip as 1.5 KW. I notice on the pages that the transmission power is different. for Aberdare, Abergavenny and Ebbw vale and mendip. Have they changed their mind in the end. . Also are the Transmission powers and radiation patterns available yet for the new Mid and West Wales multiplex. Thanks for the sight it is so useful and infomative and must take a lot of time to keep updated.

IDetails of 12D_Mid_&_West_Wales DAB multiplex

According to muxco website Mid and West Wales multiplex is also broadcasting from carmel as well as Kilvey Hill and Pressely
Also i notice that if you acess the pressely page above it will only show mid and west wales multiplex and not the other DAB services broadcasting from preselly. whereas if you go to kilvey hill you can see all the dab services broadcast from there, just thought i would point this out.

I am assuming that offcom may well do yet another draft planning of the local multiplexes to take account of the extra frequencies released by the regional multiplex closures. I can see that dab+ may not be adopted in the near future due to the so many original dab radios in circulation argument, however i think reception and audio quality are still big problems, which should be improved and i am fairly pro dab, it would seem to me that if this is the case one thing that could be done is to see if any more frequencies can be realeased by international agreement (which may not be possible) and at the very least the long talked about 2nd commercial multiplex could be launched and maybe some of the bbc national stations could be taken off the 12B multiplex and put on the new multiplex. I have a vague feeling that when channel 4 initially won the bid for this that the BBC Asian network was planning to migrate from the bbc national multiplex to this new one. I wonder if no one is interested in the second multiplex whether the bbc could just be given a second national multiplex. I wonder whether also it would be possible for DAB+ to be launched in a limited way on any new multiplex
