However, interference to radio signals continues without improvement.
In a statement published last week by HAKOM, the regulator says that its experts conducted an extensive multi-month study of interference coming from Italy and causing problem with the reception of Croatian TV and radio signals along the Adriatic coast and islands.
It concluded that the number of disturbances was lower than previously due to the withdrawal of transmitters in the Friuli Venezia Giulia, Veneto, Emilia Romagna, Marche, Abruzzo and Puglia regions of Italy.
The process began in September 2016 and was completed in January this year, being a direct result of HAKOM’s efforts, working with such bodies as the ITU.
As previously reported by Broadband TV News, a large part of the process had already been undertaken by the beginning of December 2016.
Although HAKOM says it will continue its efforts to remove the last interference, it is not in a position to issue direct exclusion orders as the transmitters are located in another country and outside its jurisdiction.
