More DRM Reception Info

It occurred to us that you may want to see what to expect for coverage of our various DRM broadcasts. I am including propagation plots for September. Some months may be better than others, especially for India and New Zealand.
South Asia broadcast

Australia/New Zealand broadcast

China broadcast

Japan/South Korea broadcast

Here are some tips that may help you in picking up our broadcasts. If you live in an area where the signal is weak, you may want to consider turning off nearby CFLs or LED lights to reduce electrical noise. If you are using an SDR with selectable filters, a 12kHz filter usually works better than a 10kHz filter.


  1. Today I tried to receive your DRM signal from 1745 to 1800 hrs IST, on Fraunhofer made DT700 receiver using centre fed dipole meant for 31 m band without any trap or filter. There was no trace of signal.Your propagation contour also suggest the same for New Delhi.
