Hi,

Well, my first try with DRM for a couple of months, was not too good.
At first I had to find the DRM schedule, so that I could update the DRMDISC and start looking for the first signal.
Finally at 11:00 UTC I started 'listening' to this station identifying with the strange name "Babcock".
In total just 8% CDA, so I'll guess I stick to my Sonos Play:1.

An unattended auto-log with no label. About 75% decoded audio.

Who is Babcock?

Hi Per,

Babcock, or more correctly Babcock International PLC, merged with VT Group PLC in March 2010. VT Communications was a part of VT Group. VT Communications was the company formed from the privatisation of the BBC World Service transmitter sites. It was initially named Merlin Communications, then, after acquisition by VT, VT Merlin Communications

'VT' was an abbreviation of Vosper Thorneycroft, and PLC is an abbreviation of Public Limited Company.

KBS via WOF

The first 6 and the last 15 minutes were perfect. Now that is an interesting DRM configuration: 4/16 QAM, Mode A, 18.44 kbps and AAC+. Sounds very good! Look here AIR! See what you can do!

Someone pushed the wrong button? BBC WorldService on 9760 kHz, but it was short!

Not very good here either. Less than 60% decoded audio made listening problematic.
