      The DRM signal even in the high frequency (SW) band can be in stereo with no noise interference from other stations or phasing distortion common on AM in this band. If there is insufficient signal the reception is either non existent or breaks up. Reception is possible at lower signal levels than with AM.

      Whilst you can have DRM/AM simulcasts it reduces the allowable data rates in the DRM reducing the sound quality or prevents the transmission of other data applications such as slideshow and Journaline an indexed text service.
