Publish date:

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.
