0700 UTC 9890 KCPS

Who's broadcasting DRM on this frequency? Normally, it's a frequency reserved for Radio Australia. I don't see this broadcast listed in any schedules.... Actually, I'm receiving this broadcast the BEST of ALL DRM broadcasts in my location, i.e. the state of Montana in the USA.

Testing DRM with an unmodified Degen 1103 tuned 3KHz slightly higher with DReaM so I can't hear any audio or receive any station ID.

RNZI probably. They've got that freq listed in the HFCC database:

Chris,

You're probably right. For the past couple of weeks, I've been using Degen's 1103 in this manner scanning for DRM signals. RNZI was always one of the worst. Suddenly, over the past few days, RNZI's apparent broadcast is now being received as one of the strongest. If the 0700 UTC broadcast on 9890 is indeed RNZI, the power levels seemed to have been increased or environmental factors improved substantially. Granted, the 1103's lack of shielding is quite problematic which I intend to improve along with adding DRM capability over the next week or so. Thanks!

That explains why RNZI has been closing down their 11675 kHz transmission an hour earlier than scheduled. Why don't they publicise this frequency change on their web page?
