By the way, "BBC & DW" will cease it's transmission at the end of this month. Deutsche Welle will decrease it's DRM activities.

If this is the case then this is a huge blow for DRM.

Where did the information come from drmdab? (I'm sorry I can't speak any German otherwise I would have got the answer from your website)

E-mail reply from WS. Confirmation of reduced service from BBC-DW Europe

Thank you for your email. It is true that BBC World Service/Deutsche Welle DRM transmissions in Europe are to cease, as this joint service will move to South Asia. However, BBC World Service will start a new European DRM service operating for four hours daily between 0500 and 0900 GMT daily. BBC WS is, as you are aware, available 24 hours a day online, and most programmes can be downloaded as podcasts. We are also carried on the Hot Bird 8 satellite at 13° East (transponder 50, vertical polarisation, 11727 MHz, Service ID 13907). Best regardsAudience InformationBBC World Service

My apologies Digger, it says Cable FM on the WS web page.
(We can hope that DRM really takes off in south Asia and then makes a real comeback in Europe).

I'm a bit surprised that the DRM Consortium hasn't made a statement about this, or am I expecting too much?

I wonder if the changes to BBC funding will affect its DRM service.

I think it already has Mike, with just four hours a day, or maybe there's more cutbacks to come.
Any chance of reinstating BBC WS SW to western Europe I wonder.

Hi all my friends

Unfortunately is true. DW will stop their DRM transmissions in the next schedule.
From Sines we are left with only 2 DRM transmission. One hour for BBC, and 90 minuts to RTPi during weekend.
I hope that we will return to digital mode in a near future, I hope...

73 and all the best for all
