DAB............what is the point?
So, I have a shiney new Cambridge One receiver/cd player/iPod thingy with FM and DAB.
Poistioned into space allocated then couldn't extend rigid aerial to get any DAB reception at all although FM was good.
Went to Maplins, bought necessary cabling, F connectors etc and postioned aerial outside of the cabinet, fully extended with 2 metres of coax on it, and fully scanned for available DAB stations, which told me there were 43 stations
Can't get BBC premium DAB service on Radio 5 Sports Extra (so what is the point of national DAB?), can get Radio's 1,2,3 and 4 (which I can on FM)
can get Absolute Rock, can't get Absolute 80s
Then got bored of checking each station for availability as apart from Classic FM all the above would cover my requirements if available
So..............what is the point of DAB apart from the technology that drives it, when still not receiving premium national DAB from the BBC?
