Is DRM Expanding to FM?
Publish date:

The steering board of the Digital Radio Mondiale consortium have floated a proposal to extend the DRM system to the frequency bands up to 120 MHz. Currently, DRM is a digital system for the bands below 30 MHz. The steering board decided at a DRM meeting in Dallas Nov. 12 to bring the idea to the full DRM general assembly at its next meeting in March.
When asked what the proposal would mean and what implications it may have for other digital radio systems, a DRM spokeswoman said she could not comment, stressing this was "a proposal."

Members of the DRM Consortium plan to extend their system to operate on frequencies of up to 120 MHz, including FM broadcast frequencies in VHF band II, 87.5 to 108 MHz.
