[opendtv] Re: Digital radios outstrip analogue

You seem to be carping about DAB. Just remember that it was the first
digital broadcasting system launched, excluding  NICAM. It's an old system,
but it works, works well, and is proving popular now that receivers are
cheap enough. That's all. I have no interest in trying to convert you to
anything, just to get you to accept the truth and reality of what is going
on outside the US.
