Re: ABC DRM Transmissions

Really, Jorge? I thought India and Brasil were championing DRM, but mostly India after "killing" some (if not most) FM and AM stations They were making Receivers, implementing it on cars and tuk-tuks (of sorts) on a very "cheap way".
I do know China, Romania and (occasionally) BBC do make DRM broadcasts regularly.

Hi Paul, 
I think remote receivers in the WebSDR network are DRM decoding capable. In case they are, you could decode it directly. 

In my opinion DRM is senseless and just adds noise to our already 'overnoised' AM band. India was one of the nations supporting this and they decided to give it up abruptly some months back.

I agree.  They only reason I can hear DRM is because it was included in the software I use to listen to my WiNRADiO SDR.  

You can have a listen to the difference between DRM and AM by going to:

It seems their is a push to put DRM receivers in automobiles in some countries.  Here in the USA a lot of modern car radios can receive digital signals (not DRM) which are piggy-backed on the existing channels in the FM (88-108 MHz) band.  The receiver in my Toyota Tacoma can receive them where available.  They have tried something similar on the AM (540-1700 kHz) band here but it has fizzled.

Thanks Richard, I don't have anything that can decode it. I am not sure why they are doing this as I don't think many people would be able to hear it.
