DAB radio – another environmental issue

Comment 8th July 2010

It is well known that the quality of reproduction of DAB is poorer than FM broadcasts and added to which literally millions of people will have to spend large sums replacing their existing radios both at home and in the car. However I have both FM and DAB radios and have discovered that battery operated DAB radios require their batteries to be changed almost weekly whereas my portable FM radio hasn't had a new set of batteries for over a year. Consequently the DAB radio is plugged into a mains adapter constantly. The resultant huge increase in power consumption is without doubt an environmental disaster when magnified millions of times.

Please reconsider removing FM broadcasts. If it aint broke – don't fix it!

Why does this matter?

Millions of people will be affected financially should DAB radio replace FM and the increase in power consumption will vastly increase the carbon footpring of this country.
