Slovakian Public Broadcaster Tests DRM+

June 15, 2012

Bratislava - Jun 11, 2012 - The public broadcaster in Slovakia, Radio and Television of Slovakia (RTVS), began a DRM+ test in Band II in the autumn of 2011 using a temporary license to test the performance of the DRM broadcast system.

During the trial, conducted from the headquarters of RTVS in Bratislava, coverage and interference measurements were provided by the Research Institute of Telecommunications SR (VUS). DRM+ transmission tests of RTVS were evaluated as successful in terms of possible interference to existing networks, and the extent of the real coverage is "exceeding the expectations."

After the evaluation of the initial results, new permission was granted in April 2012 to continue broadcasting in DRM+ for the next 10 years. More details are online.
