COPE, SER and RNE agree to boost Medium Wave in Spain

September 18, 2008 at 7:26 pm 1 comment

Cadena COPE, Cadena SER and Radio Nacional of Spain have signed an agreement in which the three broadcasting companies, under the name  “Impulsa Onda Media Digital”,  undertake enhancement of the transmitting and receiving of medium wave broadcasts throughout the country.  The three big radio chains, who hold three major networks of medium wave stations, have further agreed to digitize in the near future, their transmissions on the current medium wave frequencies.  This digital technology and the co-operation to promote and implement such technology, should result in improved efficiency in use and reception of the medium-wave broadcasts.

RNE, SER and COPE develop advertising campaigns to promote the Medium Wave. They promise prizes to those manufacturers of automotive and audio elements that support transmissions by Medium Wave, and ask the Telecommunications Administration to press ahead with any digital technology that allows digital broadcasts simultaneously with existing analog broadcasts.

SER, Cope and RNE leave open the possibility of other licensees  on Medium Wave in Spain joining this agreement.

    “digital broadcasts simultaneously with existing analog broadcasts” – do they want IBOC?
