Technical overview DRM

Digital Radio Mondiale (commonly abbreviated as ’DRM’) is an offshoot of the recent rediscovery of long-, medium- and shortwave radio. It’s main goal is to leverage on the positive propagation characteristics of the long-, medium and shortwave frequency ranges (practically , between 100 kHz and 30 MHz) while providing superior quality reducing the effects of fading and interference. DRM is approved as a standard by ITU (International Telecommunication Union), being accepted in all ITU regions outside ITU Region 2 (North and South America and the Pacific), where approval is pending. The first broadcast has been aired from Genéva on 16 June 2013 – so this standard may easily be called the youngest radio broadcast standard on the market.
