Global support for DAB on the rise


Those of you who splashed out on a DAB receiver in recent years can sleep easier now that the World DAB Forum has announced growing international support for the digital service. Reports of legislative changes in seven countries are paving the way for the demise of FM radio altogether. Although there is no fixed date for the UK yet, the changeover is anticipated shortly after TV analogue signals are switched off in 2012. DAB is fast becoming the international standard in radio and has gained a foothold in 28 countries with over 300 million listeners across the globe. This news can only be a good thing for anyone yet to make the conversion as it spells better kit for less cash.
