The DRM for FM test and demonstration in St Petersburg is going on and the reports are that the quality of the audio is excellent, to the delight of the organisers and Consortium participants (RFmondial, Fraunhofer IIs, NXP and Gospell). The Gospell receiver has also announced a new firmware update for its DRM30 receiver and its capacity to present text in the Russian language.
And KTWR on the Pacific island of Guam continues to broadcast globally in DRM. If you have any feedback, please let us know.
News from India comes straight from the heart of the country, as we are publishing for the first time a DRM blog from Pune, where pure DRM is being broadcast at the moment.
If you are interested in some special DRM shortwave transmissions form the middle of the Atlantic Ocean towards Argentina in Latin America, please scroll down.
The Consortium is also planning its events for IBC and an updated Flickr site will give you an idea of what we have been up to in these past 18 months.
Several industry articles and a blog will give you lots of facts, ideas and opinions and we hope you will write to us with your own news and contributions.
More details about all these items are included here below.
And please remember that you only have very little time to make your nominations for our fifth DRM Enterprise Award. Make sure you or your chosen people are on the list.
Chair, DRM Consortium
