Plymouth takes part in DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) test transmissions

BBC Radio Devon is being broadcast digitally on 855AM from April 2007 as part of DRM tests in the area. DRM is a new system that uses existing shortwave, MW and LW frequencies to broadcast digital radio. Unlike DAB digital radio, which uses new frequencies to broadcast radio stations, DRM uses existing AM bandwidth for its transmission.

An audience panel is being recruited and the trial will begin in April 2007. Listeners to the current 855AM service will need to re-tune to 95.7FM or DAB digital radio to continue listening. Only those with a suitable DRM-enabled receiver or tuner will be able to pick up the DRM transmissions.

For more information or further advice, contact BBC Reception Advice on 08700 100 123.
