DAB Praha: Czech Radio begins digital broadcasting

Czech-Republic

Many thanks to SWLing Post reader, David Iurescia, who shares this news and audio report via the Radio Praha website:

“10:55 on Thursday morning was an important occasion in the history of radio in the Czech Republic as it was the exact moment that full digital broadcasting was launched in the country. The new network carries nine Czech Radio stations, some of which were previously only accessible online. For now the service is just available in the capital and Central Bohemia, but there are plans to roll it out to other parts of the country in the next few years.”

    Hah, the article is full of lies but my favourites are: ““DAB broadcasts in what are called single-frequency networks, in which the waves meet and mutually reinforce one another, improving reception. It’s different with analogue broadcasting, where the waves cancel each other out.” and “The other advantage is the quality of sound. The sound is much better in digital, in DAB, in general.”

    I can hear Cesky Rozhlas 1 from 1140 kilometers away from the transmitter right now, hardly on DAB but on longwave!
