Fascinating ... At least someone is broadcasting DRM with 20 kHz of bandwidth... impressive. I agree, though, that even a DRM SW broadcast of 16 QAM could easily handle a higher bit-rate and stereo....

Personally, I like the idea of shorter digital broadcasts, but 15 minutes is difficult to capture without some automated timer. KTWR should probably consider 30 minutes instead of 15 minutes for next...

As Zygmunt stated, the two codecs are related but not identical. The GR-216 should be capable of decoding both codecs, but beware of problems with the quality of the GR-216. I received a lemon which...

Philip,

The current standard specifies AAC+ and xHE-AAC . Always be wary of such offers.

Chris,
I can't judge the quality of the code in KiwiSDR, but the code in the latest version of DReaM is quite buggy. Thankfully, other software DRM decoders exist for xHE-AAC. Personally, I want a...

A perfect example for the need of hardware digital receivers. The current version of DReaM is buggy to a segmentation fault. 😮
At least, some developers are trying to provide a software solution.

Issoudun can place a decent signal into the USA when desired. 😎
Nice, but xHE-AAC would have been nicer. 17-20+ dB here.

Bizarre... Evidently the upgraded board is substantially different from the initial production. Probably, you'll need the advice of someone else with Avion's DRM receiver.

By golly, a signal was present over Christmas, but no decoding. If I still have the log I'll post it.

I was waiting on the administrator of the Yahoo group to act. Personally, I do not foresee any problem with another group whether restricted to NA or otherwise. Time has proven that a backup...

DRMNA Yahoo Group

Since I, too, am already a member of groups.io, I'd suggest moving there. If so, I'll join the DRMNA group there as well as here on the DRMRX forum. Groups.io is the logical place.

Although late, it's good to know that Avion is at least supporting its products and its customers. I only wish Gospell would do likewise.

CNR from Kunming on 9540 kHz

The signal was there, but minimal at my location. It's probably one of the few digital CNR transmissions worth logging in the USA, e.g. Salt Lake City perhaps?
