According to RNZI's website, the earlier DRM frequencies of 5975 kHz and 7285 kHz are now 6115 kHz

Does anyone have AIR's A17 schedule?

Is RFI broadcasting DRM on 15300 kHz IAW HFCC's schedule?

When AIR finally gets its DRM act together on SW for 2017, I'd like to see a digital SW broadcast in English and AIMED at North America. We're in Phase 2 of AIR's deployment of DRM so let the broadcast fully utilize DRM's capabilities with a robust configuration of 16 QAM for the MSC. Also, AIR should use the xHE-AAC codec only, no AAC+, to encourage the purchase of DRM receivers. Gospell is nearing completion of their GR-216 DRM receiver as well so the timing would be perfect. Use the DRM SW transmitter at Bangalore...

AIR informed me today that they are waiting for equipment before starting up DRM again on 7550 kHz.

By the way, I got a wav file from Marcel and it included one channel coded with xHE-AAC. The service was in mono, bit-rate was 6.94 kbps, sample rate 32 kHz, No SBR and it sounded VERY good when I managed to modulate my signal generator with the wav file and listen with the Avion RX.

Interesting. I can hardly wait for AIR to start broadcasting digital again via shortwave.

Thanks

BBC on 7330 kHz

BBC is on 7330 kHz in DRM today, 11th May at 0800 UTC. Any clues from where it is broacast?

EDIT @1450 UTC:
BBC WorldService from Woofferton logged for 68 minutes from 0752 UTC. Max. 23.27 dB SNR and 74.78% decoded audio. The signal was rather weak, only about 13-22 dBÁV. HFCC was updated today. BBC transmits only on Thursdays on this frequency. The transmission stopped earlier than HFCC's scheduled time.

A second thought: Perhaps are they (AIR) waiting for new DRM equipment to upgrade Bangalore to xHE-AAC?

New DRM Schedules starting (A17) 26th March 2017

Looking at the HFCC web page www.hfcc.org/drm, I see that a number of BBC World Service transmissions have been added from Woofferton. I have summerised what I believe are all the DRM transmissions from Woofferton in the screenshot below.

I have deleted the screenshot, as I think these were one off transmissions.

I'm not sure so someone should probably ask AIR. Maybe, I'll get around to it eventually, but don't hold your breath.

Thanks, Neil, for the summary. It'll save listeners some time instead of searching through HFCC's database. In my view, the BBC's selection of frequencies seems to be improved for both analog and digital on shortwave. I was listening to 15490 kHz (IIRC) today from Talata and the signal was very good.

Where was the BBC's DRM broadcast on 9890 kHz today? Did I have the wrong day?

I listened on 7215 and 9890 but saw nothing - neither AM or DRM.

Unhappy DRM Consortium General Assembly Transmissions

Dear All, I have a feeling that the additional BBC frequencies that are currently listed on www.hfcc.org/drm were one off transmissions for the General Assembly of the DRM Consortium which took place on Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th of May in Baden, near Zurich, Switzerland. I had a feeling that it was too good to be true!
