With additional frequencies coming from a new transmitter location, Deutsche Welle is once again improving Europe's coverage with DRM broadcasts.
Not suitable for covering all of Germany with DRM programmes: the shortwave transmitter station Wertachtal
Norbert Schall vom Ausstrahlungsmanagement der DW
Norbert Schall is confident that this goal will be achieved: "The perimeter of the Skip Zone around the transmitter location Moscow ends in the vicinity of Berlin. We were experiencing some troubles with interference but are convinced that we will have overcome these with this new set of frequencies."
The introduction of the new frequencies does not imply the cancellation of another. The transmitter facility in Moscow, which is operated by the Radioagency M, is being fed via the satellite Hotbird 6. Using this new location, Deutsche Welle is once again breaking new ground: for the first time ever, a location in Eastern Europe is being used for transmitting digital shortwave programmes.
