Euranet: Pan European Radio

Published Categorized as radio Tagged , , ,

I am interested greatly in this project of the EU called Euranet. A Pan European multilingual radio service of the EU contributed to by 16 broadcasters in 13 countries in 10 languages rising to 23 by year 5. Due to launch April 2008 and online from July 1st it is set to broadcast on FM bands in the host countries as well as internet streams and on demand podcasts. I am surprised its not looking to Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) on high power from a few sites across Europe to reach its full potential (i have a DReaM). Costing €15,000 per day or over €26Million over 5 years, Euranet is not in Ireland or the UK with the English service being provided by Radio Netherlands. What does it sound like? think Euronews for radio add a dash or WRN and have a listen to its Polish output that is on a pre web service page here.

isn’t the Euranet logo a bit like the DRM logo?
