The Australian Federal Minister for Communications says that country will use the Eureka-147 technology for digital radio.
Australia sees digital radio as a supplement to analog, rather than as a replacement; therefore, the new technology will be introduced in phases, beginning with large metropolitan areas, according to Senator Helen Coonan, minister for Communications, Information Technology and the Arts.
New commercial license allocations will be frozen for six years once the digital broadcasts begin, she announced.
