The ABC has just announced that from this Monday, 5 September, it will be broadcasting its local radio station, 666, on digital radio. It adds:
In addition to 666 ABC Canberra, a number of other ABC radio services will also be added to the DAB+ trial in coming weeks. Pending finalisation of technical arrangements, an announcement of their start will be made shortly.
I take that to mean that at least we will soon have News Radio and Radio National as well.
Once that has happened, digital radio in Canberra becomes properly usable. Even down here in Tuggeranong, in the shadow of Isaacs Ridge, the boost earlier in the year to a 3kW test transmission has made reception respectable, if not perfect.
