Romania’s ANCOM Probing Interest for DAB

Public consultation will help determine country’s use of digital radio

Romania’s Autoritatea Naţională pentru Administrare şi Reglementare în Comunicaţii, National Authority for Communications Administration and Regulation (ANCOM), is getting the people’s thoughts on digital terrestrial broadcasting, officially launching a public consultation on Tuesday, March 13, to garner the interest of the country’s radio market.

Following international regulations on DAB, Romania has obtained two T-DAB national multiplexes and a DVB-T national digital terrestrial multiplex in the VHF (174-230 MHz) and UHF (470-694 MHz) bands, per ANCOM.
