I became a reluctant convert to Radio 3 as of about a week ago, when
one or several badly tuned local pirates[*] managed to make the rest
of the FM band unlistenable in my flat.  Now their transmitters are
drifting to encroach on this last remaining Reithian outpost (which in
the meantime I've grown to actually quite like).

So I started thinking about DAB until I heard about the quality.
DVB-T, you say?  Am I going to get hassled for not paying a TV licence
fee?  Assume that I don't own or watch a TV, and don't intend to be
viewing anything, er, televisual, on DVB either.  The pictures are
better on radio anyway


[*] honestly, I have no problem with unlicensed transmissions in
the /gaps/, but when they take out the Today programme I become
markedly less sympathetic.
