Experts say scrapping A-M radio in electric vehicles isn’t safe….and they want the Government to do something about it.
CBS Reports that 7 former FEMA Administrations have written a letter to the government… saying the lack of AM radio in some newer electric vehicles could cut off drivers from important safety alerts — especially when bad weather rolls in.
Automakers like Ford have removed AM radios from electric models. the company claims AM frequencies affect noise levels… and create buzzing sounds in E-V systems.
A-M radio signals cover at least 90-percent of the U-S population and according to Nielsen — that’s about 47-million people.
News/Talk KRMS has been broadcasting over the air on 1150AM since 1951.
On several occasions 1150AM was the only station able to provide critical information to area residents.
