RRI to showcase DRM for local coverage 【Viva digital radio!】

I’ve been to Indonesia a few times, Jakarta, Batam and Bintan (islands near Singapore) long long ago…

My wife, as a Malay citizen, has several local Indonesian friends, because she can speak Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia) very fluently.

I’m sure that a lot of dialects are spoken in this country, but the standard Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia) is quite similar to Malay, so almost all Malay can communicate with Indonesian easily.

  

 According to ART (Asia Radio Today), one of my favorite sites, the DRM Consortium announced that the Indonesian public broadcaster, RRI (Radio Republik Indonesia) will join the upcoming demonstration of DRM for local coverage in Batam from May 16 to 18.

One of the existing local FM frequencies and transmitters will be upgraded to DRM mode to present some of the clear benefits of digital radio for local coverage: excellent audio, multimedia features including Journaline advanced text and images, good coverage and efficient energy use.

 

In addition to international digital radio experts, participants include RRI experts, broadcast authorities, the industry and commercial broadcasters.

They will be able to learn about the effectiveness and many features of DRM for local coverage in the environment of Batam island, situated in the west of Indonesia not far from Singapore.

 

RRI is following its successful demonstrations of DRM in the AM (MW) bands for large-area coverage in Bogor - West Java (2015) and in Bali island (2016) with this new showcase and evaluation of DRM for local coverage.

After a full-day update explaining the technology background and applications, the participants will have the opportunity to see and hear for themselves how DRM performs by boarding a specially equipped vehicle for an excursion around Batam.

After that the participants will analyse the results and draw the conclusions for the next steps towards the roll-out of digital radio DRM in Indonesia.

 

RRI President, M. Rohanudin, says that: ‘By looking closely at the performance of DRM for local coverage, we will have tested and learnt about DRM both in the AM and VHF frequencies; we will have thoroughly understood the standard which will be useful for the future digitization of Indonesia.’

 

DRM Chairman Ruxandra Obreja welcomes the great support offered by and thorough effort made by RRI with all its recent DRM trials.

‘DRM in the VHF bands including the FM band is the newest and most flexible solution for local radio coverage.

We are happy to see how it delivers during this short Indonesian demonstration.

Having been ITU endorsed not long ago, DRM for local coverage is already being heard in Pakistan and is being demonstrated in South Africa’.

In my opinion, in many cases, maps and atlases are key tools to facilitate intellectual curiosity.

The 'World Radio Map.com' is a website that lists MW/FM/DAB/DAB+ radio stations by their real broadcasting frequencies and enables you to tune in directly from your browser, with no download required.

 An ideal web site for local radio listeners heard worldwide! 

It's also a place to find information about main transmitters and towers' technical data and many radio-related links. 

 

It covers all the major cities of the world, from Chicago to Acapulco, from Frankfurt to Johannesburg, from Moscow to Tel Aviv, from Shanghai to Melbourne ... can listen online all radio stations from these cities and thousands more from all over the World for free! 

It’s owned and operated by Mikhail Shcherbak (a.k.a. Predavatel) with help of many his friends, including me, around the world.

It's really great job!

 

Unfortunately, no information of international SW services is available.

Do you think SW broadcasts are important in 21th century?

We’re not interested in SW broadcasts (I think it might be obsolete!) and I don't own any SDR (Software Defined Receiver) nor communication receiver nor heavy external antenna.

Thailand settles on DAB+ 【Viva digital Radio!】

I’ve been to Thailand twice, however both travels were only within Bangkok and neighbors, only took very short time for local radio listening.

 

It’s awfully friendly and fun loving, exotic and tropical, cultured and historic country.

It radiates a golden color from its glittering temples and tropical beaches through to the ever-comforting ‘Thai smile’.

 (‘24 hours service to Thailand’ on my blog)

http://listening-overseas.air-nifty.com/radio/2014/05/24-hours-servic.html

 

According to ART (Asia Radio Today), Thailand’s National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission plans to launch digital radio in 2018 and states that guidelines should be finalized before the start of a nationwide trial.

DAB+ licenses are to be gradually sold nationwide, regionally and then locally.

The first trial DAB+ broadcasts began in Bangkok in March 2013.

 

Following the successful license auction for commercial digital TV channels in December 2013, the NBTC is looking to auction a number of business broadcasting services for digital radio by 2018.

The auction will be held on a phase by phase basis, and NBTC is working on the technical aspects to determine how many licenses would be made available as well as how to launch the multiplexes.

 

Thailand’s digital radio will be provided on Band III and the number of digital radio licenses should be enough to cover the existing radio broadcasters.

Thailand also proposes that in the future Community radio should be on low power FM.

Over 50 million DAB receivers, now sold Worldwide! 【Viva digital radio】

As you may know, Norway is now the first country in the world to initiate the digital switchover from FM radio broadcasting to DAB+.

National FM networks will be phased out gradually throughout 2017, region by region, starting with Nordland and ending with the Troms and Finnmark regions, which will complete the process in December.

It's really trend of the times, and widely being reported in Japan.

 

DAB/DAB+ is being operated in several regions worldwide, either in the form of full commercial services, or as feasibility studies.

There is a growing user base in countries as Denmark, Germany, Belgium, and Switzerland.

Also available in APAC countries!

I'm not interested in SW broadcasts and inter-continental MW-DX (I think it might be obsolete), so don't own any SDR (Software Defined Receiver) nor communication receiver nor heavy external antenna!

They might be out of style, but I own a XDR-P1DBP by Sony-EU (DAB/DAB+/FM receiver).

According to my favorite web site ‘Asia Radio Today’, World DAB has published the latest version of its infographic, featuring DAB receiver sales, coverage and household penetration for markets in Europe and Asia Pacific up to the end of 2016.

(The Asia Radio Today)

http://www.asiaradiotoday.com/

(The World DAB)

https://www.worlddab.org/

 

Key findings include:

1. Over 53 million receivers (including automotive linefit) have been sold worldwide

2. Growth in digital radio being fitted as standard in new cars – Norway (98% of new cars with DAB), UK(87%) and Switzerland (66%) lead the way

3. DAB population coverage continues to grow:

Norway (99.7%), Switzerland (99.5%), Denmark (98%), The UK (97%), Germany (96%) and The Netherlands (95%)

4. Next wave of markets developing strongly – 23 countries with DAB services featured in infographic Norway's digital switchover has had a significant impact on digital radio sales and reach, with cumulative receiver sales reaching 3.9 million and listening reach up to 69% at the end of Q4 2016. This is alongside a jump from 63% to 98% for new cars sold with DAB+.

 

Switzerland, starting its own DSO in 2020, has seen cumulative receiver sales increase to 2.8 million with the DSO marketing campaign due to start this year.

The UK now boasts total receiver sales of 31.7 million, along with an increase in the number of new cars fitted with DAB as standard to 87%.

 

Over 8 million receivers have now been sold in Germany, with coverage up to 96% of the population and 98% of 'first level' roads. 581,000 receivers have now been sold in The

Netherlands and Italy has almost reached the 1 million receivers sold mark. Over 3 million receivers have now been sold in Australia.

As I posted, the new services are available in Canberra, Darwin and Hobart due in 2017.

 

"In the last year, digital radio has continued to go from strength to strength and the increase in receiver sales and listeners shows that the future of radio is digital," said Patrick Hannon, President, World-DAB.

‘’It's not just the markets looking at digital switchover, but the next 'wave' where growth has been impressive. In particular, Australia, France, Italy, Germany and The Netherlands have all seen a significant jump in receiver sales.’’

The infographic also details emerging DAB markets for the first time.

 

In Belgium, it's expected that later this year regular DAB+ services will cover 99% of the population.

In France, regular DAB+ services are due to launch in Lille, Lyon and Strasbourg later this year and Slovenia launched regular DAB+ services in September.

Austrian regulator RTR recently announced it is providing up to four million euros for the launch of DAB+ services.

cherry blossom viewing period in Tokyo area

Tokyo's cherry blossom season has been an interesting one so far, having officially started ten days ago (March 21) ahead of the rest of the country's cities, but then, stalling slightly due to a period of cooler temperatures.

 

The most important factor in determining the blooming time of them is the geographical location.

On Japan's southern, subtropical islands of Okinawa, cherry blossoms open as early as January, while on the northern island of Hokkaido, they bloom as late as May.

In most major cities in between, including Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, the cherry blossom season typically takes place in early April.

Furthermore, the blooming time of cherry trees differs from year to year depending on the weather.

If the weather during the months and weeks preceding the cherry blossom season is mild, blossoms will open early.

If it is cold like this year, blossoms will open later.

From year to year, the start of the blooming season can vary by as much as two weeks.

English domestic radio broadcasts in Hong Kong

I’ve been to HK four times, the last sojourn was in January 2016.

In this travel, went to HK and neighboring areas with my wife and son for one week, with my Eton Satellit and ER-C57WR (ex C Crane CC Skywave).

We'd stayed at a hotel near HK central named Kowloon (in the Tsim Sha Tsui area) and went on two day trips to Shenzhen (Canton province, mainland China) and Macau.

 

As you may know, HK and Macau have been returned to China (PRC), but you still need to pass through immigration from mainland China.

We travelled to Shenzhen to meet my wife's relatives who live in the part of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen built-up area.

 

My wife was born in Malaysia and studied in Australia, but her both grand-parents came from Canton province, so she has a lot of relatives in this region.

The language widely spoken in this area is Cantonese.

It’s completely different from Mandarin, so I can’t understand it at all.

My wife’s native language is 'Hakka', one of the major Chinese dialects, and luckily for us, she also can speak Cantonese to a certain extent, so we didn't mind local travel.

In Canton province, Cantonese, Hakka and other minor local dialects are spoken.

I really agree that the southern part of China is a really multilingual area, it might be similar to how Belgium is in Europe.

 

I’m sure that several English radio broadcasters are available in HK.

 

RTHK

Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) is the public broadcasting service of HK.

It currently operates seven radio channels and three television channels, and produces educational, entertainment, and public affairs programs that are also broadcast on commercial television channels.

Their Radio 3 and 6 (BBC World Service Relay) are only in English.

And Radio 4 is Classical music and fine arts by English and Cantonese

The features of Radio 3 are News, popular music, information, romance, comedy, reality, sports and education programs, which similar in genre to BBC Radio 4.

The MW frequencies are on 567kHz and 1584kHz.

As for FM, they’re on 97.9MHz, 106.8MHz, and 107.8MHz.

Radio 4’s are on 97.6MHz, 97.8MHz, 98.2MHz, 98.4MHz, 98.7MHz and 98.9MHz. (FM only)

Radio 6’s is 675kHz (MW only)

 

【Metro Broadcast Corporation】

Metro Broadcast Corporation Limited currently operates 3 channels namely Metro Finance, Metro Info and Metro Plus, simultaneousy providing MW and FM services.

These channels offer listeners updated on global finance, music, entertainment, lifestyle, multi-cultural exchange, etc.

They broadcast not only by MW and FM but also DAB+

 

(Metro Plus AM 1044)

On 1044kHz (5kW). As HK is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the World, Metro Plus serves its listeners with the same concept.

(the Metro Broadcast)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metro_Broadcast_Corporation

 

AM864

On 864 kHz, a commercial and 24-hour music station playing biggest hits from the 60’s to 2000's.

Domestic radio broadcasts in Philippines

I’ve been to Philippines once, however the travel was done in 20 years ago and only within central part of Manila.

One of my wife’s friends, a Japanese woman married with Filipino man, now lives in Cebu - Central Visayas.

We met them in last year, so I have a feeling of closeness to the country.

 

Radio broadcasting is one of the major media of the Philippines, because this country is an archipelago state, and radio programs are free to listen.

As a matter of fact, looking into the daily lives of Filipinos, radio broadcasts are closely related to them.

For urban dwellers who use cars for commuting, listening music by FM radio is a very common scenery.

As for MW, programs of news, drama and music have big demand.

It is said that there’re approx. 500 FM stations in this country, English is widely used among them.

25 FM stations are sharpening in Manila, but Zubari music programs, especially Pops are popular.

In fact, about 15 stations out of 25 stations are broadcasting stations that pop music flows.

There are also stations specializing in jazz broadcasting and stations specialized in classical music, also available the stations related to Christianity.

 

As pertains to MW, it is said that about 350 stations are active, in Tagalog language, regional dialects, and English are used.

Daily news, social concerns, public relations, and soap opera are gaining popularity.

There are many broadcasting stations like this, about 130 companies actually conduct broadcasting business.

 

Approximately 20 of them have very large networks, for example, ABS-CBN, GMA Network, Channel 9 (RPN 9), IBC etc. that are broadcasting TV programs are deploying FM stations and MW stations.

Also, like Radio Mindanao Network Inc., even in a company that only broadcasts radio, there are also places where there are so many stations.

Manila Broadcasting Corp., which is mainly based on MW broadcasting, forms an enormous network throughout the Philippines.
