BR puts Ebbs transmitter into operation

15.09.2022 - Germany Germany

Bayerische Rundfunk (BR) has put the new Ebbs DAB+ transmitter (near Kufstein), located on Austrian territory, into operation and uses it to broadcast its two ensembles on channel 10A (regional Upper Bavaria/Schwaben) and channel 11D (nationwide). The new system closes coverage gaps in the Bavarian Inn valley, but the signal from the 10 kW transmitters also reaches a good 40 km into Austria. For example, good reception is reported from Jenbach in Tyrol. The new transmitter also ensures that travellers to Italy can now listen to BR on DAB+ almost continuously via the Inntal and Brenner motorways to Lake Garda. In South Tyrol, BR's programmes are broadcast by Rundfunk Anstalt Südtirol (RAS). Via the Hühnerspiel site, the signals can also be heard in the greater Innsbruck area.
