In South Africa, the Independent Communications Authority has released a draft of its Terrestrial Broadcasting Frequency Plan 2013.

In this document’s Annexure D “DAB Frequency Allotments,” the regulatory authority lays out plans to make room in the broadcast spectrum for digital audio broadcasting (DAB).

It appears to have allotted 18 slots for DAB in the VHF band as the country begins the transition.
