Madrid - Jul 13, 2011 - The Spanish Ministry of Telecommunications and Information has started to plan the complete transformation of the country's radio broadcasting facilities to digital from analog.

The primary goals of the plan are:
1. The derivation of an allocation plan that will allow for complete continuity of reception of programs throughout the county
2. Promotion of the new service in close cooperation with industry representatives and other stakeholders
3. Testing to assess the feasibility of the use of DRM/DRM+ on medium-wave and VHF bands
4. A study to determine the conditions and requirements for the establishment of a date to finally cease all analog transmission

The plan itself is to be complete within 18 months.
