AIR Bengaluru running 3 audio channels and Journaline

Read the post by Alokesh here. I'm curious about the bitrates. All of this on a big bruiser 500kW RIZ, yielding 170kW. Wouldn't it be great to have such a service for CONUS? C'mon International Broadcasters...throw us a bone!

New HFCC DRM broadcast schedule

The DRM Consortium has been working with HFCC to develop a new and easy to use DRM broadcast schedule. The first link is an easy to read "by a glance" listing, the second allows you to choose specifics of the broadcasts. I hope these will help in locating something to listen to! Unfortunately, few of the current broadcasts make it to North America very well.

Radio Nacional da Amazonia DRM trial

From our friend Rafael Diniz: 

"We don't know the schedule yet. Just 100W... People from Ministry and EBC assembled something like the Sottens trial equipment (Spark + linear amps), but the antenna will be a very good one."

"...the trial will be at 9750 KHz on Friday, After 14:00 UTC (12h in Brasilia)" [That is 16 January 2015]



UPDATE: not much from my location...
