WHAT IS DAB+ Digital Radio?
Broadcasting on different radio frequencies defines the characteristics of AM, FM and DAB+ transmissions. Whilst AM uses the longer wavelengths in the medium wave bands allowing the signal to travel further, the band suffers from interference, particularly in dense urban environments. FM broadcasts on VHF Band II (88-108MHz), a higher frequency offering improved sound quality to AM, the band is subject to multipath interference and is congested so it limits the ability for radio to expand or offer new features and functionality.
DAB+ uses a far more advanced and technically robust transmission system and operates in Australia in VHF Band III 174-230MHz. Like other digital technologies, it uses higher frequencies which work extremely well within the coverage area but have a “cliff edge” drop off at the boundary of reception. DAB+ is both cost effective and spectrum efficient technology, allowing broadcasters to offer their popular analogue stations simulcast in digital quality, and significant choice from new DAB+ only station formats such as kids, dance, sport, urban, hard and heavy, chill and smooth. DAB+ uses a robust modulation which is designed for radio reception in mobile environments, such as vehicles and public transport.
Limited technical testing is underway at the moment, and with your support, and encouragement from the community and civic leaders, a full DAB+ service for all of Northern Tasmania should be on air as soon as possible.
