It might be in the process of canning 6 Music, but that hasn't stopped the BBC continuing to roll out more digital transmitters in the UK to improve digital radio across the country.

"More than a million additional people will soon be able to receive BBC national digital radio services under plans for a further expansion of the digital radio transmission network", the Beeb has confirmed on Tuesday.

According to the BBC, it is investing in a further 60 digital radio transmitters as part of its commitment to reach 90% of the UK population by the end of 2011.

The BBC's national digital radio coverage currently stands at around 86% of the UK population.

Aside from digital versions of the main radio stations, the BBC also offers 5 dedicated digital only stations, two of which are in the process of being reviewed before possible closure.

The plan includes:

Fifteen new transmitters for Scotland - including improvements in coverage for Glasgow and Dundee, and bringing coverage to both Shetland and the Western Isles for the first time

Ten new transmitters for Wales - extending coverage through mid-Wales to Llandrindod Wells, across north Wales in Colwyn Bay, and improving coverage in south-west Wales to listeners in Pembroke and Carmarthen

Seven new transmitters for Northern Ireland - bringing digital radio to both Enniskillen and the North Antrim coast, as well as improving coverage in Belfast

Three new transmitters for Greater London and the Home Counties - boosting reception across the capital and providing coverage to the Kent weald, as well as providing coverage to High Wycombe, Stevenage and Welwyn Garden City

Nine new transmitters for the south west - including extensions of digital radio to Newquay and Bodmin, Tiverton and Teignmouth

Two new transmitters for Derbyshire, including one for Derby itself, and further new transmitters for Saffron Walden, Shaftesbury, Stroud, and Sunderland
