DRM transmitters replace 13 MW transmitters in border areas

NEW DELHI: A total of 35 medium wave transmitters have been replaced by Digital Radio Mondiale transmitters in the country.

Parliament was informed on Tuesday that these include 13 MW transmitters providing coverage to border areas.

Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Rathore said that some of the transmitters installed in our border districts may provide coverage to areas across the border.

DRM transmitters installed by All India Radio are capable of broadcast in analogue or digital or simulcast mode (both analogue and digital mode simultaneously).

Presently, these transmitters are functioning in simulcast mode (analogue and digital mode) and both types of listeners having analogue and digital DRM receivers are capable to receive AIR programmes broadcast from DRM transmitters, he added.
