Die Regulatoren der BNetzA sind aufgewacht.....

Nach fast 3 Jahren auch das "Aus" für das Radiogram von KBC via NAUEN.
Hier ein altes aus  2013:

Hello friends,

New this weekend is the elimination of the digital text modes from 
shortwave transmitters in Germany.

The German regulator Bundesnetzagentur has ruled that the digital modes 
are not allowed in the broadcast bands. Because of this, there will be 
no MFSK32 on The Mighty KBC this weekend, because it uses a transmitter 
in Nauen, Germany.  And, for the time being, there will be no DigiDX 
MFSK broadcasts on Channel 292, 6070 kHz, and Radio 700, 3985 kHz.

Listeners in Germany might want to note these arguments for the digital 
modes on the shortwave broadcast bands:

1) It is broadcasting, not point-to-point communication.

2) It can be received on any shortwave radio, even inexpensive portables 
with no SSB capability. (Software is required to decode the text and 
images, but this can be included in future shortwave radios.)

3) DRM is legal on the shortwave broadcast bands, and DRM can transmit 
text and images.

4) Text and images via analog radio requires less spectrum (bandwidth) 
than DRM.

5) Text and images via analog radio are a useful new application for 
underutilized shortwave transmitters and frequencies.

6) Text and images via analog radio extend the range of a shortwave 
transmitter, resulting in accurate content in conditions where voice 
transmissions may be unintelligible.

7) Digital modes via shortwave can be a useful alternative when the 
Internet is not available due to disasters or to net censorship by 

Klingt alles sehr vertraulich, diese Argumentation....


Oder alles nur ein schlechter April-Scherz?
