Norway sets date for FM switch off

Following the publication of a report from the Ministry of Culture yesterday, Norway will enact legislation to enable the migration of radio from FM to DAB across the country by 2017, when analogue FM broadcasting will cease. Norway was one of the first countries to embrace digital radio using the Eureka 147 family of standards, and coverage currently stands at 80%. This will rise to 99.8% by 2017 as broadcasters build out transmitters to match FM reach.
