Commercial radio will test DRM+ in Norway

The media authority Medietilsynet has issued a broadcast permit for Radio Metro for test transmissions with DRM+ on Band II (the FM-band) April-June 2013 in Trondheim. The tests will take place in connection to the Norwegian Local Radio Association Annual Meeting and Conference in April in Trondheim.  Radio Metro which is operating on FM in Oslo and some other cities in Norway is owned by the South-African company 21st Venture.

DRM+ tests are also planned for a community radio station in Stockholm, Sweden in April.
