Two Asian broadcasters have been trialing the Digital Radio Mondial digital radio standard over recent months.
China National Radio began carrying out open-ended domestic DRM tests on July 23, broadcasting 22 hours a day (from 8:25 p.m. to 6:05 p.m UTC the following day) on 6030 kHz.
It is reported that CNR’s regular AM transmission on 6030 kHz will be shut down and the broadcaster may undertake additional DRM test transmissions.
In addition, Radio Taiwan International will begin airing German-language DRM broadcasts from the Tamsui transmitter site in Taiwan. On Thursday Aug. 9, DRM broadcasts will take place on the 11990 kHz frequency range and then again on 9700 kHz.
RTI also has DRM broadcasts scheduled for Sunday Aug. 26 on 11990 kHz from 5 to 6 p.m. UTC and on 9700 kHz from 6 to 7 p.m. UTC, as well as on Sunday Sept. 9 on 11990 kHz from 5 to 6 p.m. UTC and on 9700 kHz 6 to 7 p.m. UTC.
