James Cridland sends his recommendations with this note:

Good luck to Norway this week, which is kicking off the process this week to switch off most analog FM transmissions and move over to DAB+. The exciting thing is that a typical Norwegian in Bodø currently has about ten channels on FM, but will get thirty on DAB+. In Oslo, when that’s eventually turned off later this year, they’ll get about 45. That has to be good news for the listener.
