DRM™ - Digital Radio Mondiale - Radio NZ International

Update June 2006

RNZI's own DRM transmitter has now been installed and is broadcasting to the Pacific Region. Details of the DRM schedule can be found on the RNZI website at

The signal has been heard as far afield as Japan, North America & Europe.

The New Zealand Government is to provide $2.64 million dollars capital in 2005 2006 for a new digital shortwave transmitter. An additional $421,000 will be provided next year and in subsequent years to cover operating costs. The new digital transmitter will operate alongside the current analogue transmitter for a period of several years, and then replace it completely.

At present RNZI is broadcasting to Europe in DRM mode via the UK:
