Just when you have tuned in to your favourite program on 657AM and you really do not want to miss the special guest's reply, you pass the bright yellow car on your left, while aiming for the lane on the right. In front of you the next bridge across the road towers from side to side. And then it happens... all you hear is a disturbing GGGGG... The sound becomes clear again, in time to hear the familiar jingle play at the end of the program. How frustrating!
With digital radio this will be something of the past. Imagine crystal clear sound with no interference or interruptions whatsoever, while enjoying each and every sentence of the latest Pulpit interview on your way home. With Digital Radio Mondiale™ (DRM) broadcasts, listeners can look forward to excellent audio quality (CD quality) with stereo, surround sound and much more!
Please note that trial transmissions commenced on 1 July 2014 and will take up to 12 months. It will take approximately 1 to 2 years after completion of the trials before Radio Pulpit and Cape Pulpit will be able to switch over to digital radio.
