I Have a DAB Radio, Got it for christmas 2003.
Back then i could get about 22 stations and the quality was pretty good. I used to get interfearence (That Jerkey noise). I only wanted it so i could listen to my fellow DJ’s at Swindon fm which i had no problem getting, and to listen out for DAB only stations. The signal was ok, but only if i left it in a certain area in my old room. When i went Queensbury i could get loads of stations, i got nearly 60 (It’s rather high up) and if i manually tuned i got stations from Manchester and Newcastle (I was in the loft) . I then moved to a place called mixenden in Halifax and that had crap reception in my room, but by the window it was fine but some of the stations were jerkey. so when i come baco to swindon and plug my DAB in my new bedroom (Next door to my old one) All the station were really bad. I moved it everywhere and it only worked when i taped it to the ceiling.
So i was well fed up. I took it to where it was b4 and worked fine, and now it’s in a really strange place in my room where it picks up all 29 stations. You would of thought when they first made DABs they would of checked it to see if it was jerky instead of telling every1 on the ads “You can listen to your favorate station in CD Quality” my cd dont go ” she CHAQ-QUK uper freak, Super Fre DAT-POP ‘s super JWAK ey yo” so they lied and i want my money back (well ok i didnt spend any money).
I think i figured that it depends what plug socket it goes in. I don’t think theres any point in DAB radio now. I’l get a DRM reciver when they’re cheep enough tho. not really any point to this post, just because im so hacked of with my dab
