AMSTERDAM�A new regional DAB+ network for the southwestern portion of the Netherlands is due to come on-the-air next month, according to Radio.nl.� The network of transmitters will all be heard over channel 9D.

Broadcast Partners won the tender for the construction and operation of the new network, which will accommodate both commercial and non-commercial broadcasters.� The areas to be covered are Zealand; the part of the country south of Rotterdam; and, west of the North Brabant in the Roosendaal area.�

Broadcast Partners already operates another DAB+ network, heard on channel 11C, that covers approximately the same areas.� This one carries commercial stations only.

All of the Netherlands will eventually be covered by 5 separate regional DAB+ networks; one of the 5 is still �tendered� but in any case all are to be on-air by this September.��
