VIENNA and LONDON — The first regular broadcasts of DAB + have started in the Vienna, Austria region. Twelve radio stations can be received on the channel 11C multiplex. Many of these are not available on the FM band, according to radio.nl.
The multiplex is operated by Radio Technical Center, which received a license from KommAustria at the beginning of this year. For the last three years, Radio Technical Center has been handling the test broadcasts in Vienna. Recently the test broadcasts were converted into regular broadcasts.
Across the UK, the program of work to increase the coverage of DAB network, either with new transmitters or modifications to 221 local DAB sites, has been completed. Local DAB coverage has gone from 72% to more than 90% of UK households. An additional 10 million listeners have been brought into DAB coverage for the first time, and over 4,000 miles of roads are now also covered, according to WorldDAB.org.
