Analogue radio stops badgers from eating grapes
« on: July 01, 2010, 2048 UTC »
Stolen from MWDX Yahoo! Group because it's the interweb and I can.
Also, this may explain why we never hear Wolverine Radio in AM or below 6900 kHz.

Analogue radio should not be switched off until its replacement is better, a
peer who uses it to scare badgers away from the grapes in his vineyard said
today.

Lord Renton of Mount Harry said there were still "many things wrong'' with
digital radio.

Lord Shutt of Greetland, for ministers, told peers there was still "a lot to
be done'' before the planned switchover in 2015.

He said within the next couple of weeks the Government would be making an
announcement on the "road map'' towards the digital switchover.

But Lord Renton, a former Government chief whip in the Commons, asked Lord
Shutt: "Can you assure me that you will do something to cope with, for
example, excessive cost, poor coverage and the muffled and fizzy noise it
makes?

"Can some of this get cured before the analogue radio is finally
disappeared?

"I have to confess I have an interest in this matter as I'm a partner in a
vineyard where we regularly use analogue radio all night to stop the badgers
from eating our grapes.''


Lord Shutt replied: "I'm led to believe that 75 per cent of the people we
ask say digital radio is a better radio in terms of what they can hear.''

My uncle used to leave the radio on 24/7 connected to a loudspeaker over the hog pen. He claimed that it calmed them and resulted in faster growth and better health.
