Australia has welcomed delegates to the latest HFCC conference on 24-28 August in Brisbane where representatives from the world’s leading international broadcasters will meet to facilitate the scheduling of analogue and digital (DRM) transmissions in the shortwave frequency bands. Representatives from Ampegon AG, Continental Electronics and Babcock International, key members of the DRM Consortium, will be attending this conference and will give an update on DRM developments and the new India made DRM receiver.
