My question for Carl - the DSA donated a set of Audio Descriptive Commentary equipment to the club at the end of 2016. We've undertaken to assemble a group of volunteers and have them professionally trained and managed by a leading ADC provider (at the DSA's expense).
In order to do this we need to know firstly if the club has an FM license, if not we will fund one. We then need to get the system tested - which would be a job for the 2 Phils, Bennett & Salmon I guess.
Ideally we'd like this service underway as soon as possible.
How can you help us with this, if at all?
Hi Steve, thanks for your message.

First of all, I'd like to say that the addition of ADC would be fantastic.

As we have previously discussed, having a chat with Phil about the frequency the set transmits would be your first port of call, this will ensure the ADC won't effect any of the stadiums existing infrastructure.

I sent though some links from Ofcom's website to Phil and yourself a while ago and that is still the best advice I can offer. It would be a good idea to check with them to ensure everything is okay licencing wise.

Should you get through the testing and licencing hurdles, we'll make sure your volunteers have a place on the lower bench on match days as long as someone sends though their names in advance to assist us with planning.

I'd love to be able to offer more help, but ADC is a very specialist area and none of the current media team members are trained in it unfortunately.
