Shortwave Broadcasters to Promote DRM in U.S.
Publish date:

Shortwave broadcasters in the United States want to promote Digital Radio Mondiale, a digital transmission technology for shortwave, medium-wave/AM and longwave.
Before its annual meeting this month, the National Association of Shortwave Broadcasters hosted a meeting of a new USA DRM Group at the offices of Radio Free Asia in Washington. The national organization aims to promote development of DRM in the United States.
Outgoing NASB President Jeff White is head of the new USA DRM Group.
The membership also agreed to extend the "Voice of the NASB" DRM broadcast once the current series ends in July. That programming is beamed to Europe, but the new series will be beamed to DRM listeners in North America.
