13 Oct DRM’s first ever transmission to Southern Africa
The first ever DRM transmissions for Southern Africa in French and English was transmitted on October 11th on the occasion of the Digital Radio Conference organised by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) at the headquarters of the European Parliament in Brussels.
The feedback has already been encouraging. A listener from Johannesburg, South Africa sent this:
“The broadcast was loud and clear in Johannesburg. I have recorded the transmission and it is available to you if you so wish. The average SNR was 18db but sometimes it climbed to 20db. Also receiving weak signals on 15640 from Trincomalee (Sri Lanka)(9db). DRM is the way to go. Now, how do we roll it out in Southern Africa!” Martin W
The broadcast was also picked up in Brazil and immediately put on YouTube
