You will need a DAB radio in your car soon!

Firstly, this is the General Lounge for most things to do with our roads. Indeed, most of us at some time use the road system in some way. With this in mind, users may post their experiences or observations here.

You will need a DAB radio in your car soon!

This is because we will all be going from FM to DAB.
The reason I say this is because Norway has already switched off its FM transmitters in one part of the country.
By the end of the year Norway will have turned off all the FM transmitters.
Now, how many of you have a DAB in the car?
Once Norway has went all digital, expect all other countries to follow in their footsteps.

For the authorities it is cheaper to maintain but for us it will mean extra costs.
There is no doubt that DAB radio is far better but for Norwegians they all have to get one or their radios will just pick up MW or LW broadcasts :lol:

So, for those buying a new radio for the home or car you will be better off to make sure it is a DAB radio.

Luckily I have Medium Wave and Long Wave on my car radio.
I mostly listen to talk radio on MW so I don't care :dance:

When the price of DAB radios come down I might think about getting one.
I think Norway has a good idea though if its all about progress.

I have heard these DAB radio broadcasts and they are very good.
You might need to add a bit bass or it might just have been the one I heard.
