The Maxiva PMTX-1 outdoor transmitter is weatherproof
The Brazilian DRM shortwave transmission at 11,910 kHz is now using an antenna that provides coverage for the south-central part of the country. Brazil began broadcasting in Digital Radio Mondiale shortwave in December 2020, with the broadcasts directed towards the north and the Amazonian region. Now, the transmissions are being aimed to serve the most populous region on the country with DRM’s multi-programming capabilities and interactive multimedia applications.
Together with EBC, the University of Brasilia, the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and BT Transmitters are bringing to Brazil the future of terrestrial sound broadcasting, according to the Brazilian DRM Platform. The members of the group want digital radio to be recognized by the government as soon as possible, given the interest shown by other broadcasters in starting digital broadcasting, especially in the medium-wave, tropical wave and shortwave bands.
