Digital Radio Project

The Digital Radio Project (DRP) is responsible for the establishment and operation of digital radio transmission and content delivery infrastructure for Community Digital Broadcast Licensees utilising funds made available by the Federal Government. Funding for the project is provided through the Department for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy and is administered by the Community Broadcasting Foundation.

Metropolitan-wide community broadcasters in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney have launched new digital radio services.

Several stations are broadcasting all new services, some are time shifting programs broadcast on their FM or AM services in order to provide you with greater listening opportunities and choice and others are simulcasting their current FM or AM service.

The community-broadcasting sector will continue to lobby for further funding to support the ongoing development of digital radio services.
