Ludwigshafen, Germany - Feb 29, 2008 - The DRM+ trials in Hanover are just finishing and the next DRM+ trials will start in Kaiserslautern. On March 1, 2008, the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern will broadcast on 87.6MHz in DRM+ from its own experimental radio station to the city of Kaiserslautern. The Federal Network Agency and the DRM Associate Members University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern and the German State Media Authority of Rhineland-Palatinate (LMK) will carry out DRM+ field tests.

In cooperation with LMK, the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern and the German Federal Network Agency will carry out field measurements in Kaiserslautern and the surrounding area. The measurements will determine which technical values could be the most suitable for the new DRM+ broadcasting stations so that no interference is caused to existing FM stations. Other tests will determine whether an FM analog radio broadcaster can broadcast the same program in digital quality with an additional program through DRM+.

The tests are expected to demonstrate the viability and performance of DRM+. It is expected that there will be radio transmissions in DRM+ in May 2008.

The first results of these DRM+ field tests will be presented during a dedicated symposium on May 29 in Kaiserslautern.
