This is a post of mine from from the TV Forum Watch thread, copied here in case anyone wants to continue the technical discussion:

There's an extremely interesting discussion going on in another place about transmission delays and the BBC changing FM radio over from NICAM distribution to IP. We currently have the interesting situation in central Wiltshire, where car radios flip-flop between Wenvoe and Rowridge a lot, where one has been changed over and the other hasn't, so every time you change transmitters the feed stutters. The article from BBC R&D about the NICAM replacement kit is a bit strange, seeing as the BBC won't be using NICAM at all in a few months time.
