Analogue Radio Must Never Die
It has a MASSIVE advantage over digital, one I hope we'll never need.
As a child I used to beaver away in my dad's shed making radios out of giant antennas, an earth rod, pieces of coal, aluminium foil in between pages of a book (variable cap), pencils and all odds and ends of wire.
There's no way I could ever manufacture a digital radio in anything under a year assuming I can find myself a decent MPU to decode the signal.
Oh, that and TMS and the shipping forecast.
I'm probably being totally OTT but you can make an analogue radio, in times of crisis, out of pretty much any old crap lying around. This is not true of digital.
Even the transmitters aren't that hard. All it is is a modulator & amp and they can be salvaged from plenty of places.
Anyway, I'll get back to downloading me ZX81 programs off MW now. KTHXBAI!
