The body refused to attend a meeting on 1 November after the settlement, published last week, included provision only for national DAB.
The improvement of DAB transmission is seen a crucial part of the switchover to digital radio. DAB listening fell in quarter three 2010 to 15.3 per cent of all listening, from 15.8 per cent in quarter two.

"As these discussions are ongoing, RadioCentre members felt it would be inappropriate to attend the Digital Radio Stakeholder meeting."
