Nice, France - Oct 15, 2012 - France's CSA has authorized a DRM+ test in the Nice area, in the south of France. It will occur in Band I (near 60MHz).

� 47MHz to 68MHz (old TV Band I)
� 65.8MHz to 74MHz (OIRT FM Band)
� 76MHz to 90MHz (Japanese FM Band)
� 87.5MHz to 107.9MHz (FM Band II)
� 108MHz to 130MHz (China)
� Possibly 174MHz to 230MHz (Band III)
