DRM Short Wave Tests in Brazil
Since the end of October, Radio Nacional da Amazônia of EBC (the Brazilian Public Broadcaster) has been transmitting in DRM30 on short wave (9.750 kHz). The transmission is a trial organized by ABRADIG (Brazilian Digital Radio Association) and EBC, with the support of the DRM Consortium. It was a low power (150 W) transmitter installed at the Rodeador Site in Brasília, the capital in the centre of the country. The aim of this test was to assess the behaviour of the equipment, signal quality and system stability. The coverage area was expected to be small because of the low power but, despite all this, the signal was detected all around Brazil and there were some intermittent signals received in New Zealand. After good initial feedback the tests should be resumed in the future.
