Polskie Radio Uses DRM

German transmission-services provider and DRM Associate Member Media Broadcast has begun transmitting digital shortwave broadcasts for Polskie Radio, the external service of Polish public broadcaster using the Digital Radio Mondiale standard. "The introduction of DRM is considered a renaissance for shortwave radio," Media Broadcast said in the announcement. "The Polskie Radio broadcasts can be heard with DRM throughout Europe in considerably better sound quality." Media Broadcast is part of the TDF Group, which operates transmission facilities and networks across Europe. Media Broadcast launched the service in December. An English-language program is broadcast on 6015 kHz from 1800-1859 UTC; a German program is broadcast on 3975 kHz from 2030 to 2100 UTC. Media Broadcast has shortwave transmission facilities in Nauen and Wertachtal, Germany, operating at up to 500 kW. TDF is a founding member of the DRM Consortium. (NASB Newsletter)
