Do you think they'll end up where all the Calculators go? Silicon Heaven?
Yes and so he needed to, north of Birmingham, reception is non existent in many parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire, I only know one person who owns a DAB radio, I do know another half dozen who bought them took them back because they could hardly listen to a program successfully.Ed Vaisey has now extended FM switchoff.
The DAB car radio in my new Polo is excellent. Reception with minimal dropout from Cambridge to Peterborough.
I find it hard to believe that the typical BBC local listener in Somerset would be capable of rioting... aren't they all over 80? (Present company excluded, of course, I think? ;))I regularly listen to local BBC radio in the car, FM, of course. There will be a mass riot if this is switched off any time soon.
I think the reason phones have FM not DAB is because there is only a hand full of countries using the DAB standard but most if not all use some sort of FMThese days though with the advent of mobile broadband and infinite numbers of streaming radio stations on the internet, DAB is no longer a contender for listening to the radio in my book, heck, most mobile phones come with FM tuners, not DAB tuners, so for something modern like a smartphone to have something invented by Edwin Howard Armstrong in the 1930s fitted just shows how reliable it is...
