The Roll Out of Digital Audio Broadcasting in Ireland and Explorations into the Future Radio Landscape
In 2012, I was finishing my degree in Dublin City University, a BSc in Multimedia. I decided to do a thesis on The Roll Out of Digital Audio Broadcasting in Ireland. At the initial presentation stage, I was told I needed to cut back, that I was trying to do a Phd in three months with this. So I ended up with what we have here.
I really enjoyed researching this and chatting to everyone about digital radio in Ireland.
Although my thesis covers online radio, satellite radio and what most people consider digital radio, your little radio box that also has FM, it’s a shame that in the five years since I wrote this, that not a lot seems to have changed with DAB in Ireland. Even RTÉ 2XM, on which I present The London Ear, is still technically in a trial.
Please do realise that everything was present and correct in 2012, things happen, things change, companies change, personnel change, life changes. Trump gets voted POTUS.
