The problem is that in the UK, the power levels/coverage areas are well 
coordinated, and there are not large variations due to ERP / location 
(/there are a lot of good reasons to apply the technical/common shared 
system approach used in other parts of the worlds, but for a variety of 
reasons that I won't go into for fear of starting Craig up again on the 
"utility" broadcast concept that won't work in today's world unless we 
turn everything upside down, I won't go there/... :^) ). This means that 
many/most of the crippling receiver issues relative to front end 
performance are less of an impediment to reception capabilities.
Also, far fewer stations over a much smaller geographic area...

If mankind were to resolve to agree
in no institution of government,
until every part of it had been
adjusted to the most exact standard
of perfection, society would soon
become a general scene of anarchy,
and the world a desert.
