IRIS Launches on DAB+ In Perth

Staff Writer

A new digital Radio service IRIS has launched in Perth.

The launch of the Vision Australia RPH service, was made possible by a partnership between the CBAA’s Digital Radio Project, Indigenous community station Noongar Radio and supported by community station Capital Radio.

“This collaboration shows the goodwill of a number of community radio stations in Perth, not least Noongar Radio, towards re-establishing this fundamental broadcasting service. This is what community radio does well: collaborate, innovate and address the needs of the community”,  said Adrian Basso, President of the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia.

“Using the digital spectrum means Perth has a wide coverage, good quality and free-to-receive RPH service now and in to the future. 24% of all radio listening now occurs via digital radio, with some services already at over 30%.

“Perth listeners rejoin the other capital cities with digital access to RPH services. RPH is a keystone service on digital broadcasting.”
