Anyone know what the score is with our radio systems when the digital switch over is done in UK?

They won't work!

I have found that digital radio is so susceptible to movement of the aerial that I can't imagine it works very well in a moving vehicle at all. Also they seem susceptible to EM disruption

Even the one in my house if I have my iPad charging too close to the aerial kills the signal.

Doesn't bode well then, hopefully on full switch over it'll improve the signal strength and stability

Cell phones (digital) don't have a problem working in  a moving vehicle.

As far as I know, a date for the end of Analogue Radio in the UK has not yet been confirmed,
and has only been rumoured to be around 2017 / 2018, i.e. around four or five years away .....

Until then, I'm quite happy riidng along with the music available .....  :600:

It was 2015, but they have said it won't be ready in time, no new date has been published

It's not like our government to set a target date and fail to meet it, IS IT? Lol
