Dear   DX – Friends all over the  World  !

Hungary is on the way to digitalize radio and television broadcasts. The Hungarian News-Distribution Authority officially informed on Friday, July 25, 2008 that in about 6 months time from now, digital radio and television broadcasts will be introduced. The tender was won by so called Antenna Hungaria Ltd company. ( By the way, we visited Antenna Hungaria Ltd. in connection  with our EDXC Conference 2001, on Monday, August 27 , 2001 ) . The digital distribution will take place alongside the earth surface and  reception for radio and television will be obtained  by simple roof–antennas. Hungary is planning a smooth transfer into the digital age for the entire country. The last analogue distribution system will be switched off  first in the year 2011.
