I listen to Droitwich regularly over here, and intently during the
referendum. The results were received over the air several minutes
before the internet.

Lets hope 198 kHz does not go QRT soon!

I am horrified at the prospect of broadcast radio becoming entirely digital not the least because the system(s) chosen are likely to be years out of date and totally inferior.
Here's hoping Droitwich (198kHz) can keep going, it's quite good reception
round the mediterranean countries and it would be handy to move it back to
200khz if there's not much else on the band.

Hi all

I dare not say on this forum what I think of this news. Closure of AM broadcast stations and eventually as a consequence the loss to the general public of a relatively simple (go anywhere) reception medium is IMHO a bad thing. I am not sure the consequences are fully understood.
I have managed to blow away most of this Blacksheep thread before reading
it so apologies if I am just repeating some one else s contribution.

Sent via my own personal Too-Way (two way) Earth Station to and from the Eutelsat Ka-band satellite at approximately 172 degrees Azimuth in the Clarke belt owing to BTs 19th century cable technology inability to provide a good enough 21st century broadband service. I agree for this message to be passed on to BT Plc at 81 Newgate Street, London EC1A 7AJ via the snoops at GCHQ Cheltenham, thanks for your cooperation it is appreciated.
