[HCDX] ACMA-Australia embargoes shortwave spectrum for DRM
ACMA-Australia embargoes shortwave spectrum for DRM:
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has placed an
embargo on frequency bands potentially suitable for use by broadcasting
services using Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM)
These bands are outside the broadcasting services bands used by traditional
General Manager of ACMA's Inputs to Industry Division, Giles Tanner, said:
"ACMA intends to plan for the introduction of DRM but is also aware that
international arrangements are still evolving and that Australia is
influenced by these arrangements."
Mr Tanner said that ACMA's use of embargoes and planning is intended to
avoid the premature introduction of unplanned services that may compromise
the benefits to the public that would otherwise result from the delivery of
comprehensively planned DRM bands.
The frequency bands involved are 59506200, 71007300, 95009900, 1165012050,
1360013800, 1510015600, 1755017900, 2145021850 and 2567026100 kHz.
It is intended that no new frequency assignments in these bands will be
authorised except for certain purposes.
ACMA will consider applications for the licensing of trials to investigate
the use of the bands for DRM.
