Smith, Doug
June 2013
Monitoring Times;Jun2013, Vol. 32 Issue 6, p44
The author expresses his views on the discussion made at a forum that AM/FM radios would no longer be standard in the vehicles of two automobile manufacturers within two years. The forum speaker says conventional AM/FM radio will disappear from new vehicles in the future. Commenters have suggested removing the requirement that a station offer a strong signal across its city of license. The author says that over 600 AM stations can also be heard on FM over low-powered translator stations.
