Posts: 42 ... due to the bad luck, the DRM exciter has stuck and the transmitter remained on carrier only, that's the worse start of a new proejcet i could imagine. But thanks for monitoring, we hope we will get it fixed for the next transmission.

Many thanks for monitoring folks, every time the beggining is difficult, but let's hope it will lead to positive results in the future.


DRM Progress in Asia


DRM Presentation at HFCC B11 Conference



DRM India discusses roll-out strategy at ABU GA
RnM Team 15 Nov 11 17:28 IST

MUMBAI: The DRM consortium organized a meeting in New Delhi recently, bringing together various stakeholders to discuss issues dealing with the roll-out of DRM Digital radio technology in India.
Senior representatives of more than 20 companies along with All India Radio's engineer-in-chief RK Jain attended the two-hour long meeting. Jain, explained at length the current status of DRM transmitter procurement and installation process. Among other things, the importance of marketing and increasing awareness about digital change was highlighted. The great need for good, inexpensive DRM receivers was also emphasized to the receiver manufacturers and distributors present at the table.
At the 48th General Assembly of the Asia Pacific Broadcasting Corporation (ABU) issues surrounding DRM around the world were also discussed. The meeting brought together ABU participants from countries like India, China, Turkey, Germany and DRM Consortium members representing transmitter manufacturers, broadcasters and, for the first time, DRM receiver manufacturers.

Representatives of All India Radio, currently in the process of a DRM roll-out, gave their vision - a mixture of simulcast, new content and new additional information to accompany audio.
AIR has increased its DRM SW transmission by 8.25 hours to a total of approximately 16 hours a day. AIR first started Digital Radio Transmission from Delhi in Short-Wave band by using DRM Technology on 16th January, 2009 with a target coverage area of the UK and West Europe. Its Vividh Bharti service on DRM (in NVIS mode) has an approx coverage area of 800 Kms. With the increase in transmission time, more language services have now been added to the External services transmission.

Moderated by the DRM chairperson Ruxandra Obreja and stimulated by the ABU TC director Sharad Sadhu, the last minutes of the workshop were devoted to the thorny issue of content. Besides taking part in the various sessions (where updates on DRM activity around the globe and the DRM+ trial in the UK were given), DRM also displayed new receivers.
Other DRM member companies attending ABU were: Fraunhofer IIS, RFmondial, Nautel, Thomson, Transradio, Analog Devices, BBC, Deutsche Welle and TDP.



KTWR Guam special broadcast on air right now at 1330 UTC on 15400.


The QSL Card Scanning Kit is practical digital solution to help hams and shortwave listeners manage their ever-growing QSL card collections. No more plastic wall holders, multiple photo albums or shoeboxes needed.
Akron, Ohio (PRWEB) November 18, 2011
DX Engineering has createde a practical solution to help hams and shortwave listeners manage their ever-growing QSL card collections. The new DXE QSL Scanning Kit stores your cards and displays them in rotation on an attractive, compact screen. It’s great way to prominently display your QSL cards in the hamshack, living room or office. Reminisce about past QSOs or show off your collection to your friends.
Up to 2,000 QSL card images can be stored on the included 2MB SD card—larger capacity memory cards will store even more card images.
The complete kit consists of a compact digital scanner, a seven-inch LCD digital picture frame screen, plug-in power supplies and the SD card.
Operation is simple. Feed the QSL cards individually through the scanner--they are stored on the SD memory card. To view, just plug the scanner into the digital screen to view.
A slider guide adjusts easily to accommodate non-standard QSL sizes. The scanner accepts card sizes from 2 x 2 inches to a maximum of 4 x 6 inches. The images are saved in standard JPEG format, so they can be viewed on other electronic devices as well. Unlike bulky flatbed scanners, a PC is not required for the scanning process.
Part Number: DXE-QSL-KIT
Introductory Price: $ 89.95

Edmonton Journal November 13, 2011 2:07 AM

Re: "Morse code's dots and dashes fade into history; Wartime operators watch language
dying," The Journal, Nov. 7.

The Journal's obituary to Morse code was a most interesting article, but I disagree with the
conclusion that the code is a "dying language."

I have been a licensed amateur radio operator for many years; when I passed my
examinations, proficiency in sending and receiving the international telegraph code at 18
words per minute was mandatory. Morse was only recently removed from the amateur
exams, but the use of Morse code, and the amateur radio hobby as a whole, is far from

One has only to spin the dial on any shortwave radio to hear this "dying language."

Hundreds of thousands of radio amateurs worldwide use Morse code on a daily basis, and
proficiency in Morse is still a mark of special skill. Some novices transmit slowly, while more
expert operators converse faster in code than is possible using the spoken word.

In emergencies, radio amateurs use Morse code to send vital messages when voice
communications are impossible because of poor reception or improvised equipment. Often,
amateur radio operators have provided the first or the only communication with devastated
areas when satellite links and cellphones may be knocked out.

It is true the day of the professional radio operator expert in Morse has been overtaken by
technology. But, while I have the greatest respect for the veterans of the Morse Telegraph
Club, I think it's slightly premature to bid adieu to either Morse code or amateur radio. Both
will be with us for a good while yet.

James Dawe, Edmonton
