Torvmark is not a source to count on when it comes to DAB. There's a lot of feelings for the old radios in Norway: Digital Radio CEO

Torvmark is, however not a reliable source when it comes to DAB matter. Norway's politicians have been victim for incorrect info about DAB. There's a lot of feelings for the old radios in Norway: Digital Radio CEO

This article is more or less a consistent chain of lies!
Therefore you cannot ask Torvmark about additional details about the forced introduction of DAB in Norway! "When people understand the reasons....."

WHEN??? As if we do not know the true reasons for the forceful act of DRN and Torvmark. The discrepancy is massive!

"When people have tried it they really like it" Where on Earth does he get that from. The biggest lie lies within his presentation of the "cost saving". The fact is that the change is costing the Norwegians BILLIONS of kroner. The argued cost savings is a pure FALSE statement.
Next time you are going to issue an article about the matter, talk to US instead. I can be contacted thru' Facebook Messenger! Please do so!

JB was a fantastic radio mentor to a younger me, and as PD with 4BH in Ipswich he was always approachable and knowledgeable. And I'll also remember him working alone into the night, when 4BH moved to Stones Corner for a while. That velvety voice! All the best to Roz and the family.. Vale John Burnley

I have indelible memories of John Burnley, who gave me my start at 2SM back in 1973. I moved from Melbourne to Sydney to take up that kind offer from John and that's where I met my future wife, Dianne Walker. About three years later, we both left Sydney to work with John at 6PM, where he was PD.

John's advice and mentoring was invaluable to me and, even if we were in disagreement about something, he was unfailingly reasonable and persuasive and his guidance always won the day.

Dianne and I offer our deepest condolences to Roz Burnley and daughter Asha. John had such a huge influence over our lives and careers, and will be sadly missed.

Vale, dear Burnley.

Bob Stuart.

I live in Norway. I usually listen to radio in the car, at home I use spotify. We have annok radio connection ariund in the country despite all the mountains and valleys (and 100'eds of tunnels). Changing to DAB means changing all the radios around us, like in the alarm clocks, the surround reciver and the car stereo.
The reasons for switching fro fm to DAB are two.
1) There is not enough space on the fm band to fit all the channels.
If you use 100kHz intervals (instead of the troublesome 50kHz) you will have 200 channels on the fm band. We have about 10-12 channels here, and in the biggest city I guess they have 30, so there is still space for another 170 channels without changing to DAB.
2) The DAB signals are "much better ", there will be no interruptions in tunnels and valleys.
Bullshit, the signal is clearly more troublesome, and doesn't work as well in tunnels. This is changing because the fm antennas distributed around in the country is being shut down, and new DAB antennas are being installed.
Basically, we are being forced to change all our equipment, based on lies, and I still haven't figured out who benefit on this and why the politicians want this.
We have done shit like this before, when other countries installed broadband internet we installed ISDN, a technology already abandoned by other countries. Now we will probably have DAB for 5-10 years before we realize it was a dead end.
Some people here don't care, some are angry about it and I actually met one guy who thought lots of channels was nice (but on fm we could send 200 channels if we wanted).
More than 50% don't want this junk (less than 50% want it or don't know).
I hope other countries learn from our mistake!
