According to digital radio plus website, the new multi plexer is ready to go on June 5 2010.
Five radio stations have been chosen for the testing, they are 3 r r r fm Melbourne, altermira Adelaide, 2 redfurn fm as it services all of Sydney, a station in Brisbane, unclear as yet and sport fm Perth.
The testing can't be heard by us the general public and the stations won't go to heir until the second or third week of July, no official announcement of the actual date.
At first, the five nominated stations will go to heir with others to follow after them, once it is established everything is working.
Expect then that most stations servicing the majority of your nearest capital city to have some digital signal on the new multi plexer.
A couple of notable exceptions apply.Pbs seems to be dragging their heels, in fact, who even knows if they will survive anyway, and nobody is sure if the non Vision Australia r p h stations are ready yet.
Of course, your local stations servicing your local shire aren't allowed yet, legislation needs to be changed and that's not happening any time soon, so don't get your hopes up.
Also for any fifa world cup followers, sbs digital like sbs a m will have extensive radio coverage of all fifa world cup matches all in English of course.
If anyone wants rugby league state of origin coverage, check out grandstand digital radio tomorrow night at 7 p m Melbourne time the coverage will be there not sure if 774 is covering it, it's not mentioned there, so unless they announce it tomorrow, it's only available on digital radio.
