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  🙂  😀
