07 Jan Pakistan’s DRM Plans
According to sources in Islamabad the public broadcaster (PBC) unveiled its digital migration policy which was due to be approved by the Prime Minister shortly. The policy has three phases which are all costed and which foresee digitisation of both FM (in about 15 locations) and AM (in about half a dozen locations) within three years.
The draft policy stresses the benefits of supplying more channels on the same current analogue frequencies with significant energy savings and crystal clear audio quality. As analogue receivers become scarce this move is considered beneficial as digital receivers will become available on the market while cars and eventually mobiles will also be able to bring the benefits of DRM digital radio to Pakistani listeners.
