DRM will be in higher frequencies too

It seems that in Paris (despite complete public transport strikes) the members of the Digital Radio Mondiale consortium voted today to begin the
process of extending the DRM on-air system into the broadcasting bands up to 120 MHz. This means that it is no longer the cases that DRM will replace AM, and DAB the analogue FM portion. For some countries, where DAB is not the best option, the DRM system may be the system of choice. Looks like the two forums, World DAB and DRM wil work together on relevant solutiuons...which could well be mix and match. But this is a crucial year for DRM....we need receivers as well as a standard - and it also has to be part of the technology in mobile phones.
