Norway is reported to be starting the shutdown of their FM broadcast network next week. Norway's parliament voted to eliminate FM broadcasting after being told they would have a greater choice of stations and a clearer sound with a switch to digital. Sweden is eliminating their FM broadcast in the future and even the UK is considering it. I have a digital radio in my car that picks up both FM and digital radio. The digital radio does sound much better but, similar to digital broadcast TV, the broadcast range is much shorter. Seeing as the car radio can get both FM and digital broadcast, why are the governments mandating an end to FM ? An estimated two million cars in Norway only have FM radio and would require the owners to spend money in order to receive broadcast. What real reasons could the government have to force this change ?
