More than 50 stakeholders from across the Jordanian radio industry heard about all aspects of DAB+ deployment, and participated in a discussion about how DAB+ is relevant to the radio sector in Jordan�offering an opportunity to address FM congestion, as well as signal interference from neighboring countries.

The next steps for Jordan are the formation of a national committee for digital radio and the development of a DAB+ deployment plan. �Getting cars imported with DAB+ will be a key element of that plan, given that radio listening happens mostly in-car,� according to O�Neill�s post.
