Tomorrow makes Norwegian history

As the first country in the world Norway will start to shut down the FM band and become fully digitized using the DAB+ format.

Starting with Nordland county January 11th 2017 and the last county to go silent on the FM band is Troms, December 13th 2017.

So first step is to check if you have a DAB or a DAB+ radio. ALL broadcasting will, from tomorrow, be broadcasted in the DAB+ format.

Scan and find the station NRK mp3:


If you get this text with sound you have a DAB+ radio. They are already sending in the + format.

But then, anyway, when you turn on the radio tomorrow morning you should perform a full scan to let the radio pick up the changes in the broadcasting infrastructure:

If you don’t get any sound after the new full scan it has been advised to factory reset the radio and make another full scan:

The full scan and the factory reset you fill find manipulating the Menu/Info button. It will probably vary some from brand to brand how you manipulate this button.

I will, personally, do the factory reset first and then perform the full scan. That way you erase ALL memory and start  with a “new” radio.

Good luck  🙂  😀

Winter in..

..Storøyni, Øvre Årdal  🙂

I came back from Beitostølen late Monday afternoon and no snow what so ever. This was the situation the following morning:

Rambi for sure liked it on the morning walk  🙂

Good dog getting her morning breakfast, three pieces of Markies:

Not very often that the snow lasts for a longer period of time here but it kept snowing:

Finally, in the evening, the snow clearance people came along and cleared the roads. The weather improved and it became a starlit night. So this morning I just had to clear then entrance into the lawn:

We hope the the snow will last but with the forecast for Friday it is not likely   🙁

I have been  getting an enormous amount of spam on this blog so I just had to make those of you who has not yet been approved commentators to register yourself. I am sorry about this but there were no way around it.

Finally i will post an update on the Snow Grip Solution at very difficult conditions from my own experience yesterday, will be posted soon.

Have a great day  🙂
