Delusional DAB arguments page
Friday 25 February 2011 1:37PM

What the masses have yet to realise is just how switching off FM in faviour of DAB will effect them. Just take a look arround your home and car's to see just how many FM radio's most people own, from radio alarm clocks to car radios, what is everyone going to do about their car radio, particularly those built in systems which most are, such cars will still be on the road when FM is switched off, only a small percentage of cars on the road currently have DAB. Just think how much it is going to cost everyone to replace ALL their radio's, and for what exactly?

I think it is about time that the public was made more fully aware of this situation and the consequences and that a petition is set up to stop FM switch off, at least for another 10 years.

I live in Lower Heswall Wirral. Same thing, very low signal, some progs not available, no signal, others break up and vary, all since last night 23.9.13 at around 9.15pm. Still very low signal this morning, most show no signal.

Reception signal problems this past week have been due to atmospheric conditions caused by a "High" and unusual weather conditions for time of year. Spoke to BBC Engineers who have confirmed this.
