In a statement, it says that the interference is most pronounced on the Adriatic coast and islands.
HAKOM adds that it has been considerably reduced following a number of measures undertaken by Italy in the last three years, including the enactment of a special law amending the country’s TV frequency plan and establishment of a €50 million compensation fund. Last December, Italy completed the switch-off process of television broadcasting transmissions on 61 frequencies.
The closure of transmitters causing interference began in early November 2016 in the northern Italian regions of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Veneto and Puglia and was concluded two months later with those in the Marche region.
However, interference caused by Italian radio signals continues to be a big problem in Croatia.
HAKOM notes that it has sent more than 3,900 international applications to the Italian authorities in the last eight years requesting the removal of inteference.
It also regularly reports to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is responsible for the implementation of international agreements in the field of electronic communications, Radio Regulatory Board (RRB) and the Radiocommunications Bureau (BR) about the status of interference and asks for their help in addressing the issue.
