The Pakistan Broadcasting Corporation (PBC) has announced a three-stage plan to digitise its operations using the DRM technology. The budget for the each phase of the project is currently under the consideration of the government. Radio Pakistan has now decided in principle to install a 100KW digital( DRM) transmitter on the land of Sariab Quetta.
As a first step in this regard, on October 5th, this signboard was installed at the site.
The new service will allow locals in the area to listen to good audio quality programmes sand local artists in their mother tongues.
Once a budget has been allocated to the project, a tender will be put out publicly in order to acquire the transmitter.
