DRM with its latest technical setup helps broadcasters to fully cover these countries digitally by using DRM in both the AM as well as in the VHF bands.
The workshop was interactive allowing for many pertinent questions to be answered by the DRM specialists. In addition, many recent sound and visual demonstrations were used to illustrate the power of the DRM radio standard.
