The transition to digital is one of the most significant issues facing the community broadcasting sector. As part of a broader sector consultation process the CBAA is organising a Digital Radio Symposium, to be held in Sydney from September 29 to 30. The Symposium will bring together representatives from DCITA, ACMA, peak sector organisations and wide area coverage stations from the six state capital cities that will be involved in the first phase of digital radio transition. The Symposium will allow an opportunity for discussion of operational and policy issues arising from the Australian Government’s Digital Radio Framework issued last October.

The Digital Radio Symposium has been supported by DCITA, the CBF and the CBAA.
