(Only just discovered this wonderful forum - so this dates back to 28 September, when analogue TV signals were finally switched off for Oxford area.)
Can anyone explain why the switch off of analogue TV signals (which we've just endured) should result in dramatically impaired RADIO reception? I know digital TV signals were to be boosted once analogue was killed, but surely UHF TV frequencies are too far from FM radio to interfere? Is this all part of a continuing evil plot by commercial interests to force us onto digital radio, at vast expense? (Unlike TV, where the £10 or so cost of a plug-in tuner is tiny compared to that of a new set, I can't imagine anyone - even in Hong Kong - will be rushing to produce plug-in tuners at a fraction of the cost of my many under-a-fiver radios!).
