I have a DAB/DAB+ Radio in Wellington. A scrolling message on the receiver says that Kordia are shutting down their DAB/DAB+ trial on 30 June, concluding with - We hope to be back one day!
I am sad to see this go as the quality of the sound is much better than FM. While many countries have embraced DAB technology including the UK, Europe, Asia and Australia it's sad to see that New Zealand is not doing the same. It looks like NZ radio stations don't want to invest in the technology. Perhaps they are looking at alternatives such as DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) though I doubt this is the case.
Are there other DAB radio listeners among the Geekzone membership or is the radio a dying art form - it appears to be so far as DAB radio is concerned in NZ. DAB RIP from 1 July it's back to FM radio.
