World Radio Day 2020 letter

Thursday 13 February, 2020

Almost every Australian has a climate change story to tell from this summer holiday.

Fires, smoke, power outages and now floods.

We are used to the cycle of natural disasters in Australia, but this summer has been different. This is the year that the effects of climate change disasters came to the cities.

Smoke obscured the Harbour Bridge and the banks of the Yarra River. Eerie red suns shone over Brisbane and Adelaide. Power outages were felt in many cities. Now floods have finally put out the fires, but have also swept away cars and trees.

In a plenary session on the future of radio at the Radio Asia conference in Bangladesh this week, Steve Ahern took a glimpse forward 20 years in a live audio simulation of the changes ahead.

Putting on a pair of wearable earbuds, a thin strip of plastic that attached to the ear lobe, Ahern explained that the vibrations from the wearables work like headphones, expect that they stimulate the ear canal to put sound directly into his head, and use skull cavity resonance to generate the bass sounds.

DRM not inferior but complimentary says Ruxandra Obreja

Thursday 10 October, 2019

The expansion of digital radio to regional areas in Australia’s vast continent is an issue that has been challenging broadcasters and regulators for some time.

While DAB+ has been highly successful in Australia’s main population centres, its expansion to the rest of the country has slowed due to cost, technology and frequency issues.
