Latest News and Updates

October 21st
In Italy, the regulator has assigned Block 12C to a new * DAB Italia * transmitter listed for Gorizia (Gorica), close to the border with Slovenia. That frequency is assigned to the western half of Slovenia, however, and is already in use by the regional ensemble SLO DAB+ R2 W. Elsewhere in the Italian region Friuli Venezia Giulia, to which Gorizia belongs, the Porzus transmitter switched from Block 12C to Block 7C last year in order to avoid such cross-border interference.
