Can you imagine what lift conditions would do to such a system on the FM
band? Gawd.

Besides, if common sense prevails, the FM system will be with us for some
time yet. Just because its an old systm does not make it out of date. The
aircraft still use AM for their comms, they do so because it works.


All politicans seem to think analogue=old & bad and digital=good,new
and shiny.

You think that politicians actually think?

Radical concept.

Of course they do: they think almost entirely about their own
political advancement and accumulation of personal wealth.

In some cases they get their advisors (unelected politicians)
to do most of the thinking for them.
