Consultant takes BBC to task on digitization plans

"Independent Consultant John Shaw shares his knowledge and expertise on DRM and DAB in an open letter addressed to BBC Trust Chairman, Lord Patten."

Check out this "open letter" from the Consortium website. Mr. Shaw challenges the notion that localized DAB multiplexes will serve as well as strategically sited DRM30 outlets (including resurrecting BBC on longwave).

I get the idea that when something becomes an "open letter" it is akin to a last-ditch effort to get a point across. Maybe we can find a way to use this both directly (email Lord Patten) and as an example for us to do our part in support of digitization rather than abandonment of shortwave in our respective countries of abode.
