well , FM radio in general is a local radio . It is very diversified subject .interested persons / listeners should form local communities ( clubs )to discuss about FM radio . They can meet once a week / fortnight todiscuss various issues about the radio broadcasts and convey theirviews to the concerned radio executives ... @ Raghav , if you are interested , I'd suggest to start forums related tomassmedia / FM radio on a free web host ...

yes I have issues with FM radio signals and transmissions.
the Issue is when I enter a closed underground tunnel as in case of Delhi Metro. FM Radio signals drop and the hiss sound starts, Similarly when moving in a Indian Railways, the FM Radio transmission is distorted by the Cieling Fan activation. I need some kind of resolution. I am using Nokia 6030 as the FM radio receiver. there might be a lot of people travelling in Delhi Metro, kolkutta metro facing similar problem then in Mumbai locals and perhaps not missing the Indian Railways.
Please give me a solution to both problems if possible or At least if U know where to raise these questions please let me know.

^ FM signals travel in straight lines . I do not find any solution for
the signal dropping in underground tunnels . When moving in a
train / bus , we have to stay closer to a window / door to receive
FM radio signals ...

Here is a piece of old news (Jan 2003) - any one has more details ...
Recently the Indian Railways has licensed Sahara Group to set up a
radio service for select trains via the Worldspace satellite radio
platform. Sahara is to uplink its radio feed to the Worldspace satellite.
A receiver in each train receives the audio signal to re-distribute over
the train's internal public address system.[/b]

Its natural for FM signals to drop when thre receiver passes thru a tunnel.There is little an individual can do to resolve the problem. Only if the Delhi Metro authority want, they may install repeaters. That's the only soution.
