Fruitful DRM+ Symposium In Germany On VHF Band III

The German State Media Authority of Rhineland Palatinate (LMK Ludwigshafen) and the University of Applied Sciences of Kaiserslautern (Fachhochschule Kaiserslautern) organised a symposium on the 27th of May 2010 in Kaiserslautern, Germany under the title: DRM+ in VHF Band III – together with DAB+: The Positive Potential for Digital Broadcasting. The interest was high and over 100 German and international experts attended the day that gave participants a chance to present quite a range of information and points of view on DRM+ and digital radio in general.

The symposium highlighted the encouraging  test results showing  that having DRM+ in band III does not disturb DAB/DAB+. Professor Andreas Steil, Joachim Lehnert and associates presented lab measurements of the field trial with DRM+ in VHF band III. Their presentation also included data on DRM+ mobile reception performance, protection ratios DRM+/DAB, field trials DRM+/DAB and preliminary planning parameters. Their paper concluded that DRM+ and DAB could be complementary  when co-deployed in band III. The same conclusion was underlined in the more general DRM presentation of Mr. Alexander Zink, Fraunhofer Institute.
