Group Name: (to be gatewayed to RADIO-L) Status:         Moderated (RADIO-L moderator,                   Ted Ledingham <[email protected]>) Summary:        discussion of Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) Distribution:   World Rationale ----------------------------------------------  Two lists on Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB), RADIO-L and the DIGITAL RADIO DISCUSSION FORUM are planning to merge into one list on RADIO-L on April 1, 1995.  These discussions will merge into one forum to better promote the common goals of discussing issues related to DAB. The participants of both fora stand to benefit as the combined subscriptions will bring together more than 300 people from around the world who are actively working in digital radio, or who share an interest in its development and implementation. The merger will involve minor changes for all of the participants. The new list will take place on the current RADIO-L discussion, although will be moderated by DIGITAL RADIO FORUM moderator Ted Ledingham ([email protected]). The archives of both previous fora will remain in their present locations.  Ron Stone established the RADIO-L discussion and newsgroup gateway in late 1993.  Ted Ledingham, of Canada's Task Force on the Introduction of Digital Radio, established the DIGITAL RADIO DISCUSSION FORUM, which grew out of the Second International Symposium on Digital Audio Broadcasting (Toronto, March 1994). In merging the two memberships as RADIO-L, both Ted Ledingham and Ron Stone will play key roles. Enquiries or problem reports regarding submissions should be directed to Ted Ledingham, [email protected]  Question/difficulties regarding the filelist, archives, subscription or the general administration of RADIO-L should be directed to Ron Stone, [email protected] The list is maintained at St. Paul Computing Services, University of Minnesota.  The participants of DIGITAL RADIO DISCUSSION FORUM will be added to the RADIO-L subscription list on April 1, 1995.  After that date, all contributions should be sent to:        [email protected] (Internet)              [email protected] (BITNET).  In regard to newsgroup access to the discussions, we are planning to remove the newsgroup gateway to the RADIO-L discussion, however are seeking to create a new newsgroup (tentatively The new newsgroup will be gatewayed to the RADIO-L discussion much like the old was, except that it will be moderated.  We look forward to the benefits that a combined community will provide, and welcome your comments and suggestions in regard to the administration of the discussion and filelists.  ============= CHARTER =============  About the RADIO-L discussion ----------------------------------------------  The RADIO-L discussion list is to be a moderated forum for addressing the issues involved in the transition to a Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) standard in countries and regions around the world. Discussion regarding the relative merits of:        *various DAB proposals,        *research initiatives (consumer, economic, technical),        *regulatory and policy matters,        *programming initiatives, or the        *social and economic implications of a transition to DAB, is welcome and encouraged in this  forum.  A filelist is to serve as an important part of the discussion and would include as a minimum :         FAQs about DAB and related topics         a list of internet resources related to DAB         a bibliography  The creation of this newsgroup would allow wider access to the RADIO-L discussions at a time when countries the world over are planning and implementing DAB serv ice.  We hope that you will support this group, and look forward to your comments and participation in the discussions in news.groups.  Please distribute this proposal to your friends and colleagues.
