back in March we posted that RTE were installing a DRM transmitter to replace the old 252LW. While RTE has no firm plans for DRM they are about to test DRM anyway.
Our radio friend Enda O’Kane writes
DRM will be carried on RTE’s longwave 252kHz transmitter.
Nightly commencing 08/08/07 until 15/08/07 from 0100hrs to 0700hrs UTC,
In addition to above :
Mon August 13th commencing 2100hrs ending 0800hrs on Tues Aug 14th.
Tues August 14th commencing 1400hrs ending 1400hrs Wed Aug 15th
These tests are to gauge public reaction to this technology and RTE regrets any inconvenience to listeners.
After these tests RTE will review the results.
It is important to stress that RTÉ has, as yet, no plans for a DRM launch
