MUNICH�Germany''s national DAB + network will soon have better coverage in central Germany. In mid-December, 3 new mux transmitters will come on, to be followed by an additional 2 early next year. These new transmitters will cover cities such as Dessau-Ro�lau and Jena, and parts of the autobahn A4, A9 and A14, according to Radio.NL.

A new transmitter with 10 KW at Sieglitzberg will improve reception in the region Bad Lobenstein / P��neck along with improvements in reception on the A9 between Court and Gera. A new 5 KW transmitter at Jena will provide better reception in the city itself and on the A4 between Erfurt and Chemnitz.

In the north of Saxony, reception along the A14 between Chemnitz and Dresden should be improved by a new 10 KW transmitter at Oschatz Collmberg. This new transmitter is slated for December.

In late January or early February 2015, a new 2.5 KW transmitter at Brocken, the highest mountain in northern Germany, will be turned on. This should allow for reception in the Harz.

Finally, the reception in the city of Dessau-Ro�lau and along the A9 between Leipzig and Berlin should be improved by a new 10 KW transmitter at Wittenberg.
