Retain AM and VHF Radio Broadcasting

Comment 9th July 2010

The government is planning to do away with AM and VHF broadcasting.

At the moment, millions of people use these services. And although AM radio is somewhat dated, VHF is certainly not.

The VHF service is a high quality one, offering sterio broadcasting in most cases, and is very well respected throughout the country.

The government wants to scrap the service alogether, and thereby make us all by digital (DAB) radios.

These radios are expensive, and are nearly always monophonic.

Why does this matter?

If this crazy idea goes ahead, all our radios, other than digital ones, will have to be scrapped, including modern car radios.

This monumental waste is quite unnecessary, as the majority of people are happy with the status quo.

The real reason, of course, is that the government wants to sell off the lucrative bandwidth off to the highest bidder.
