Shortwave radio - new USA DRM group meets in Washington and elects leaders

Tuesday, June 01, 2004

A coalition of more than 20 broadcasters, network providers and
manufacturers interested in implementing Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM)
transmissions in the US held its first meeting on May 6th at the
headquarters of Radio Free Asia (RFA) in Washington. The group elected Jeff
White, who recently finished his term as President of the National
Association of Shortwave Broadcasters, as its Chairman. It also chose Mike
Adams of Far East Broadcasting Company to lead its International
Broadcasters team, and Adil Mina of DRS Broadcast Technology (formerly
Continental Electronics) to lead its Transmitter Manufacturers team. RFA's
Technical Operations Division is a DRM Supporter.

The meeting included a presentation by DRM Commercial Committee Chairman
Michel Penneroux of TDF, who outlined DRM's global implementation plans. The
USA DRM Group is the latest of DRM's national coalitions. DRM has assembled
alliances of broadcasters, network operators, regulators, manufacturers and
retailers in key markets worldwide, in preparation for DRM's commercial
launch.

"Now is the time for US based broadcasters, as well as international
broadcasters who want to reach US audiences, to get actively involved in DRM
implementation," said Jeff White. "Broadcasts from DRM Members BBC World
Service, CBC/Radio Canada International, Deutsche Welle, Radio Netherlands,
Radio Sweden and Vatican Radio are already available in the US, as well as
those of China Radio International and Radio Kuwait." DRM's Live Broadcasts
Schedule is at www.drm.org.

Most people, especially beginners, don't want to spend alot of money for a
SW radio.  DRM needs inexpensive, good quality, widely available receivers
if it's backers want it to get out of it's niche.

Of course, the most important thing for the popularity of SW is popular
programming.  It's too bad Air America isn't on SW.

It seems as though they can barely afford to be on MW.

But I'm sure that they are seriously working on obtaining public funds.

auditorium.
