Have you any idea on how much it would cost for a small local station

No. Enlighten us. And I meant real costs, not licensing and paperwork.

OK .. the licensing and paperwork are around negligible!.

For FM anything from bugger all if you have your building roof
sufficiently high!

If you have to rent a site and pay for a landline or radio link
£3K to £15K maybe 20 in a large City

typical DAB carriage charges..

DAB at 128 K £60K

DAB at 192 K £90K

all per annum..
