4 G spectrum

What on earth is 4G spectrum & why is it supposed to upset TV ?
We've only just got over switching to digital TV.
Hope there are not plans to change radio to all digital.
What little one hears of music on digital its not as good as what ever you call existing transmissions.
As I beleave the yanks say "have a nice day", with no meaning at all.

Re: 4 G spectrum

Not sure about 4G but as far as radio is concerned I think there were plans switch all radio broadcasts to digital from 2015 but the uptake of DAB radios has been so low I think the date has been shifted on a few years.
As I understand it new cars are still being sold with radios that only cover the FM bands but cannot pick up digital audio broadcasts.
No doubt other forum members will be able to provide more detailed information on your post.

Re: 4 G spectrum

This has been discussed on here before, not so long ago..... can`t think what the thread title was... (Strat will find it .....before Old Jim    Grin Grin Grin .. )
it is something to do with the top end of the digital tv channels being interfered with (possibly) by the 4G phone frequencies...
