RFmondial demonstrates multiplexed DRM at IBC 2019

Hannover, 12.09.2019 – RFmondial demonstrates its advanced multiplexed DRM modulation for the FM band, that allows broadcasters to transmit multiple DRM channels on one physical transmitter.

The newest member of RFmondial's successful LV-series of DRM modulators and exciters allows the parallel generation and transmission of up to six pure digital DRM channels, or in combined analog and digital „Simulcast" mode, one traditional analog FM channel and up to four DRM channels.

"The ability to freely mix and combine analog and multiple digital DRM signals, in adjacent channels, with individually varying power levels, supporting single frequency networks, allows broadcasters, network regulators and frequency planers a new dimension of possibilities for planning and operation of digital radio networks" states Stefan Galler, Managing Director of RFmondial GmbH in Hannover.

Radio Romania International plans to drop shortwave ?

Zach R @SportyPorcupine on twitter mentons that due to a budget shortfall, there's a proposal afoot in Romania to shut down the shortwave radio service.  It currently broadcasts in 13 languages, here's the press release by National Press Agency Agerpres https://t.co/CJ56rxrf0l (in Romanian)

Press Release (English translation)

Do not destroy Radio Romania International!

The Romanian Syndicate of Journalists MediaSind, through the Radio Romania Branch, expresses its concern at the intention of the SRR president-general director, Georgică Severin, to suspend the shortwave broadcast of the Radio Romania International station.

Due to the superficiality with which the responsible factors of the institution treated the problem of the allocated budget, the Romanian Broadcasting Society lost, at the last rectification, 10 million lei, an amount without which the good functioning of the company cannot be ensured.

In order to cover this consistent deficit, according to some public statements of the President - General Manager, the expenses with the shortwave transmitters owned by Radiocom, which broadcasts Radio Romania International (RRI) programs in 13 languages, would be cut. dialects.

The 'solution' to closing the shortwave emission, even if it is the most handy, having immediate effect, is a totally wrong one. Indeed, as hypocritically motivated by the Georgica Severin decision, these transmitters are not useful in the country, with the expansion of the FM network.

The gravity of the decision of the Radio management is, however, a huge one, undermining even the national interest, with which even Georgică Severin has no right to play. Let us not forget that Romania has the second diaspora in the world, as a percentage of the population, after Syria. From the recent estimates of the Ministry for Romanians Everywhere, around the country live about 9.7 million countrymen whom we have to treat as Romanians with full rights, who have the right to information, including by Radio Romania International.

The head of the SRR, Georgică Severin, had to make energetic and repeated requests from the Government in order to obtain sufficient funds for the good functioning of the institution, including for the antennas, taking into account the future presidential elections of 2019 and parliamentary from 2020. Why Is the main means of transmitting messages to Romanians abroad exactly during this pre-election period being abolished? Should we consider this gesture merely as a sign of disrespecting the diaspora?

On the other hand, it should be noted that RRI issues programs for the Aromanian communities in the world, as well as for foreigners, in general, interested in Romania and the geographical area in which we are, RRI being thus an efficient polyglot software soft diplomacy tool. .

Let us not forget then that the shortwave broadcast has a strategic character, because, in case of necessity, of disasters, of calamities, but also of suspension, by hostile decisions of Romania, of the Internet, the Romanian state can communicate with the Romanians from abroad and with the world at large. As it is known, the Internet is extremely vulnerable to political decisions. Also, in the case of catastrophic floods, earthquakes, conflicts, short waves remain the only reliable way to communicate with the world.

Therefore, the idea of stopping the shortwave broadcast, coupled with another simplistic idea that RRI will successfully broadcast on the Internet, can produce serious effects, jeopardizing Romania's national security.

Exiting the Internet only means, in fact, closing the RRI station, which is in contravention of Law 41. According to art. 1 of the law, SRR makes programs for abroad, not online content; broadcast means radio broadcast, not online!

The exit of the RRI from the shortwave frequencies (this is a heritage of about 7,000 frequencies that are traded biannually by international broadcasters) will result in the loss of frequencies in favor of other countries. At the same time, Radiocom stations in Ţigăneşti, Săftica and Galbeni, where the 5 stations used for RRI are located, will be closed and Radiocom employees will be relocated or even fired. And as according to a harmful Romanian tradition, any provisional decision becomes final, it is hard to believe that it will return to the previous situation, to the issuance on short waves, even if the Government would allocate the necessary funds.

Closing the shortwave transmitters, without offering other means of transmission in exchange, would practically equate to the disappearance of the station; radio means broadcast on radio waves, analog or digital; a station on the Internet is no longer radio, it's just a multimedia product.

The next logical step, after a possible shutdown of the shortwave emission at RRI, will be the personnel restructuring. See the unhappy experience with Radio3Net station, which is only online and experimentally on DAB, in Bucharest, which has under-sized staff, even under the conditions of online production.

We consider that giving up the short wave, in whole or in part, is not a decision that falls within the competence of a president-general director because it concerns Romania's strategic interests. In this situation, the CSAT opinion should be requested and, in the Parliament, the Law on the organization and functioning of the SRR should be changed. Or, Georgică Severin is far from having the agreement of these institutions.

The role of RRI has been and is very important: promoting the country abroad and spreading Romania's opinions worldwide. By giving up any transmitter, whether from long, short or medium waves, the main object of activity of the SRR is affected, which is the realization and dissemination of programs (according to art. 15 of law 41).

Taking into account the serious situation that could arise as a result of the decision of the head of SRR, MediaSind Radio Romania requests the Parliament of Romania to intervene in an emergency regime to stop the destruction of the Radio Romania International station.

BBC World Service extends shortwave broadcasts in Hindi, English & Urdu

The Director of the BBC World Service, Jamie Angus, says: "The provision of independent and trusted news in places of conflict and tension is one of the core purposes of the World Service.

"Given the shutdown of digital services and phone lines in the Kashmir region, it's right for us to try and increase the provision of news on our short wave radio services. Audiences in both India and Pakistan trust the BBC to speak with an independent voice, and we know that our reporting through several moments of crisis this year has been popular and valued by audiences who turn to us when tensions are highest."

BBC News Hindi radio output (9515 and 11995 kHz) will be extended by 30 minutes from Friday 16 August. The full one-hour news programme will be on air from 7.30pm to 8.30pm local time.

On Monday 19 August, BBC News Urdu will launch a 15-minute daily programme, Neemroz. Broadcast at 12.30pm local time on 15310kHz and 13650kHz, the programme will focus on news coming from Kashmir and the developments around the issue, and include global news roundup tailored for audiences in Kashmir.

BBC World Service English broadcasts (11795kHz, 9670kHz, 9580kHz, 7345kHz, 6040kHz) will be expanded, with the morning programming extended by an hour, ending at 8.30am local time; and the afternoon and evening programming starting an hour earlier, at 4.30pm local time.

The shutdown has left people with very few options for accessing news at this time. However, news services from the BBC continue to be available in the region - through shortwave radio transmissions in English, Urdu, Hindi, Dari and Pashto. As well as providing an important source of news to the region, the South Asian language services have brought added depth to the BBC's coverage of the Kashmir story.

The recent introduction of four new languages services for India - Gujarati, Marathi, Punjabi and Telugu, following additional investment from the UK Government - has enabled the BBC to offer a wider portfolio of languages and distribution methods to a region that is geographically diverse as well as politically tense. This year's Global Audience Measure for the BBC showed that India is now the World Service's largest market, with a weekly audience of 50m.

New updates for SDR#, libairspyhf and Airspy HF+ (Discovery) Firmware

Airspy has announced the latest releases of SDR# r1702, libairspyhf r1.5.0 and Airspy HF+ Firmware r2.4.0. 

Here's a summary of the changes:

The FM Stereo flag was added in the SDR# API: FmPilotIsDetected.

A new experimental Low-IF mode at a lower sample rate (256ksps IQ) was added across the chain to allow portable devices to operate smoothly without requiring further DC/IQ correction or frequency translation. This mode is considered "experimental" because the AGC has yet to be optimized to accommodate for the smaller bandwidth, but it is already usable as-is with the AGC always on. 

For the curious types, 256ksps Low-IF was obtained by shifting the IF, adding a narrower channel filter and decimating 768ksps by 3. This gives a wonderful number that is a multiple of a known sound card standard rate: 32kHz.

The IQ streaming and command handling were optimized to allow all of this processing to happen. A positive side effect is that the streaming is no longer interrupted by the commands (set frequency, gain, etc.) - and this one is not experimental.

USAGM networks recognized for excellence with Edward R. Murrow Awards

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Two U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM) networks-Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) and Radio Free Asia (RFA)-have been named winners of the prestigious 2019 National Murrow Awards. This is the first time the two networks have received this honor, presented by the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) for excellence in electronic journalism.

"I am thrilled that the RTDNA's Edward R. Murrow Awards have recognized the high-caliber reporting that RFE/RL and RFA produce," said USAGM CEO John F. Lansing. "My heartfelt congratulations go to the skillful journalists and storytellers who offer our global audiences accurate and professional journalism-the bedrock of what we do at USAGM."

CEO Lansing added, "Edward R. Murrow, who in the early 1960s led the U.S. Information Agency, a predecessor to USAGM, would be proud of our modern media organization's wide-reaching impact."

Daisy Sindelar, Acting President of RFE/RL, and Libby Liu, President of RFA, offered praise for their award-winning networks, which provide compelling, uncensored and locally-oriented news and information to audiences in some of the harshest media environments around the world.

"We are honored to receive this recognition for providing our audiences with unique stories, powerfully told, on the most influential formats in our coverage area," said Sindelar.

RFE/RL received the National Murrow Awards' top honor for Multimedia in the Television Network category. Judges reviewed eleven examples of RFE/RL's impressive domestic news coverage ranging from Armenia to Uzbekistan.

RFA Mandarin's "The Women Against the State" won in the juried contest's Excellence in Video category. The piece focuses on the aftermath of China's "709 crackdown"- a nationwide roundup of lawyers and legal activists that began in July 2015 - and the wives of those still held in custody today.

"RFA Mandarin's digital team deserves full credit for this prestigious award. Their hard work to spotlight these brave individuals and share their stories speaks to Radio Free Asia's critical journalistic mission," said Liu.

Although this marks the first time that RFA has won a National Murrow Award, the network won several Regional Murrow Awards in years past.

DRM announces seminar during Broadcast Asia 18th June 2019

Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) part of Broadcast Asia Seminar in Singapore

The Digital Radio Mondiale Consortium will participate in an extensive seminar on Digital Radio Implementation and Transition Strategy scheduled during Broadcast Asia, on June 18th in the morning. The half-day event will be held at Suntec Singapore, Level 3, Room 308.

The seminar aims to offer an understanding of DRM technology (and other standards), to examine the best strategies for a smooth transition to DRM while drawing on practical examples and the experience accumulated in Asia-Pacific and other parts of the world.

The DRM experts will present the standard, so versatile in the AM bands (like medium wave) and VHF bands (like FM), its benefits and many valuable features like the Emergency Warning Functionality. Network planning considerations, actual steps to be taken for a successful DRM roll-out and demonstrations of some of the excellent audio in DRM and other benefits will be part of this unique event held in conjunction with this major Broadcast Exhibition. The experts who will share their theoretical and practical knowledge with the participants are: Alexander Zink, Fraunhofer IIS, Albert Waal, RFmondial and Sharad Sadhu, Consultant.

Ruxandra Obreja, DRM Consortium Chair, says that: "This is the first time that ABU and AIBD have invited us to take part in such a comprehensive seminar. We are sure it will highlight the benefits of DRM by giving participants the chance to understand the features and benefits of the DRM digital standard in a simple and practical way. DRM is a great technology for the Asia-Pacific region and the more participants learn about it, the more comfortable they will be to ask for and introduce it."
