Thousands of drivers that enjoy AM and FM radio in their cars could lose the ability to tune in while driving by 2015 is a new governmental plan goes ahead. According to a report from Communications Minister Lord Carter, the majority of local and national radio stations would not be broadcast on AM or FM by 2015.

The move is to vacate the airwaves currently used for AM/FM broadcasts and broadcast the programs on DAB only. The remote also recommends DAB capability on all new car radios sold in the UK by the end of 2013.

The bigger problem is that currently DAB only reaches about 80% of the country. Lord Carter has recommended that the coverage of DAB be built out to meet the 2015 changeover time.
