It was inconceivable that Monaco would operate a system requiring different receivers from those used in France. France initially selected the DMB-A (DMB Radio) subset of the DAB family for digital radio and Monaco broadcast a number of services in DMB-A for a while. More recently, France has authorised the use of DAB+ and the clear preference of broadcasters, as demonstrated on the airwaves, is for DAB+. Wohnort recommends that you buy a receiver that is DAB+ capable if you intend to use it in Monaco or France. DMB-A is still theoretically one of the sub-sets authorised for use in France. The French Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Economy and Finance conducted a consultation in 2018 on a government proposal to delete DMB-A from the national specification, leaving DAB+ as the sole authorised system.
