Praise is clearly due to Carl and Mark at the Media Team and Carl's posts have my eyes a bit to what goes on therein!

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.

Thanks Carl,

I have literally thousands of DSA emails and that must be there somewhere I guess!

As I understand the equipment it can broadcast across a range of frequencies, so we just need to pick one that does not clash with the existing.
I have been unable to establish though whether the club has an FM license, but am guessing that if there concerns over a clash then, maybe, it does?

It's not a problem that you cant help with the commentators - as you say it is a specific skill set and we have lined up some tip top training.


For anyone else reading we will, at some point, be looking to recruit commentators for this very exciting role....



Thanks again mate.

No problem at all.

There are internal radio systems at the stadium but I suspect that they require a different type of licence if at all. Two-way communication and broadcast are different. For that reason I would highly doubt that the stadium has a 'broadcast' type of licence but I could be wrong.

The Public Address Systems work a wireless FM frequency and there's a whole host of other people using radio equipment on match days. It's just a case of checking what there is and what the ADC can work on and making sure they all work together okay I guess.

I'll dig out that email and forward it on - I hope it's useful.
