Netherlands Continues DAB+ Expansion
New initiatives and channels launched across country
DAB+ development continues to take place across the Netherlands, as the last few weeks have seen the launch of a handful of new initiatives and channels.
One of the areas that DAB+ has expanded to is Zandvoort in North Holland, according to Radio.nl. Local broadcasts like ZFM Zandvoort, Internet Dance Radio and Amsterdam Most Wanted are now dispensed in DAB+.
A test channel has also begun operating. The channels are transmitted with a bandwidth of 96 kbps.
After being among the first areas to have DAB+, East Groningen is again one of the first to send local broadcasts across multiple DAB+ stations. Local stations are now able to reach Delfzijl.
In addition, DAB+ network Jamm FM has added additional stations, including Rick FM Radio RTV Amstelveen and Aalsmeer, and MusicBoxz.
All DAB+ broadcasts from local stations use an experimental license issued by the country’s Radio Communications Agency.
