The Big Retune

From March 2016, DAB radio is expanding and Premier Christian Radio will be moving. You will need to retune your radio so that it can reset all the available channels and find us in our new home.

DAB digital radio is changing and you need to be aware of how this affects you. All DAB digital radios will need to be retuned in order to receive all the radio channels available. This includes Premier Christian Radio. If you don’t retune, you will no longer be able to listen to Premier Christian Radio on your DAB radio. 

Retuning is usually fairly straightforward, but every type of radio is different. We have put together the most common methods of retuning, but in some circumstances you may need to consult the manual or contact the manufacturer.

For a limited number of people, these national changes to DAB  will mean that they are no longer able to receive Premier Christian Radio on DAB radio. If you have retuned your radio and cannot find the Premier Channels, please visit our FAQ page by clicking here.

Retuning is easy, and here are some simple instructions. 

Retuning your radio should only take a few minutes.  The radio will scan all the channels that are available on DAB and put them in alphabetical order, just like you are used to.  Premier Christian Radio will be found as PremierChristian or PremierC on your display.

Most digital radios can be re-tuned using the following simple instructions:

Press the Auto-Tune or Auto-Scan button on your digital radio. 


If there is no Auto-Tune or Auto-Scan button, press the Menu button and go through the options until you find Auto-Tune or Auto-Scan. Select this option.


If these options do not work, or the new stations cannot be found, a further action known as a Full-Scan may be required.  Either press and hold down the Auto-Tune or Auto-Scan button until a Full-Scan begins, or press the Menu button and go through the options until you find Full-Scan or similar. Select this option.

Some radios request the multiplex band frequency, which is 11a.

Restoring your presets 

Resetting your radio (as above) may result in your radio losing its Presets. If you want to restore your Presets, please follow the instructions below:

1. Select your favourite digital radio station on the station list.

2. Hold down the suitable Preset button for 5 seconds.

3. Release Preset button.

Some parts of the UK will be unable to hear Premier broadcasts on Digital Radio owing to the changes in national DAB transmission. Find out if you are affected by these changes.
