The main FM transmitter is at Churchdown Hill near to jct 11 on the M5 which broadcasts on 104.7 FM to Gloucester, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury. The FM output is relayed from the Stroud transmitter on 95 FM and from the Cirencester transmitter on 95.8 FM.
The station commenced broadcasting on DAB digital radio on 18 October 2013 as part of the Gloucestershire local multiplex. The DAB transmitters are located at Churchdown Hill (for the Severn Vale, including the Cheltenham / Gloucester conurbation), Stockend Wood (for south of Gloucester, parts of Stroud Valleys and shores of the River Severn), Icomb Hill, near Bourton-on-the-Water (for the north Cotswolds) and Cirencester (for the south Cotswolds).
The AM transmitter is at Berkeley Heath and broadcasts on 1413 kHz to the Forest of Dean, Dursley and Stroud valleys. AM transmissions from Stow-on-the-Wold to the north Cotswolds ceased on 7 June 2021.
The station is available to stream online around the world via BBC Sounds. Audio heard on BBC Sounds is the same as FM output. Most football commentaries cannot be heard online due to rights restrictions, but FA Cup football games can be heard online in the UK. Most Gloucester Rugby games can be heard worldwide with the exception of European Champions Cup games which can only be heard in the UK.
Local programming is produced and broadcast from the BBC's Gloucester studios from 6 am to 2 pm on Mondays to Fridays. The afternoon programme is shared with BBC Radio Wiltshire and the weekday evening shows (6 pm to 10 pm) are all broadcast across the BBC West area with the exception of sport programmes. Manny Masih's Monday evening programme originates in Gloucester.
Weekend programmes from 6am to 2pm are shared regionally across the BBC West area. The breakfast show is presented from Gloucester. The Saturday afternoon sport programme (2pm to 6pm) broadcasts only to Gloucestershire and splits frequencies when multiple commentaries are broadcast.
