DRM+ Test Transmissions Begin in Sweden
Stocksund, Sweden - Feb 24, 2014 - The first test transmissions of a DRM+ system went on-air in the Stockholm area. The test trial is running with a DRM+ transmitter operating on 97.0MHz with a power of 500W ERP.
The test trials, which are being carried out by Digital Radio Sweden, are being made in consultation with the Post- and Telecom Authority in Sweden (PTS). This six-month first phase will create the basis for an initial technical evaluation, and a second phase will comprise a more detailed evaluation.
Digital Radio Sweden (DRS) is a financially independent and politically neutral non-profit organization. DRS's objective is to present alternative or complementary technologies to DAB and thus facilitate competent and well-informed policy decision making before switching from analog to digital radio.
Today, the general assumption is that digital radio is synonymous with DAB technology; but, digital radio is a common concept for digital distribution technologies for wireless broadcasting of which DAB is just one of four internationally recognized standards. DRS believes in the importance of investing in technologies that are future-proof and optimal also for small-scale broadcasters such as local commercial or community radio stations.
