I am concerned about the push to switch to DAB 20% of radio listening is currently done while people are driving, as I drive for my work I listen to hear traffic anouncements, as I live in Scotland I find that FM coverage is very space in more areas than you think, for example from the central belt to the Border and along the A9 between Perth and Inverness where the weather reports are crutial.
Are they planning to kill radio reception in these large areas which have a poor FM coverage as it is? Stikes me as Madness.
I would like to point out that even in my home in the North of Edinburgh where I can see the roof tops of the city centre and the main local transmitter across the forth I can get a good solid DABS signal!
From my point of view DABS is only good for the government, more radio stations means more Licence Money from the radio companies, and the dash for digital is not good for the listener.
