CBA to move to FM
Fri Dec 8 06:28:47 EST 2006
I had once read somewhere that the reason the CBC hadn't already moved CBA
was that ships at sea were dependent upon it for weather forecasts. I
gather that's no longer the case(?).
Question: What has prompted the mass move to FM in Canada, anyway? It's
been happening for years (I think CFNB in Fredericton has been off the air
for at least a decade). Is AM THAT much of a relic? Come on.
