Abstract: Radio broadcasting technology in this era of compact disc is expected to deliver high quality audio programmes in mobile environment. The Eureka-147 Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) system with coded OFDM technology accomplish this demand by making receivers highly robust against effects of multipath fading environment. In this paper, we have analysed the performance of DAB system conforming to the parameters established by the ETSI (EN 300 401) using time and frequency interleaving, concatenated Bose-Chaudhuri- Hocquenghem coding and convolutional coding method in different transmission channels. The results show that concatenated channel coding improves the system performance compared to convolutional coding.
Keywords: DAB, OFDM, Multipath Effect, Concatenated Coding.
