U.S. Digital Shortwave Plans for Europe

Turms Tech LLC has applied to the media authority FCC to broadcast DRM from New Jersey toward Europe and the Middle East. Specifically, they plan on using the Armstrong tower, just west and north of New York City, with yagi-type antennas, generating an ERP of 10 kW on 9.65 and 15.45 MHz.

International broadcasting on shortwave using DRM is presently operated by the BBC and Radio France as well as public/government broadcasters in China, Romania, Russia, New Zealand, India, Korea and Japan.  Also by private broadcasters in Bulgaria, Germany and Guam.
