Cos I do - have a lovely Roberts Radio that was a birthday present - only I can only listen on FM because if I listen using DAB it constantly breaks up. Am I living in a remote, rural area that might have signal problems?? NO I am living in a big Scottish city. Who can I complain to because it is seriously getting on my wick!!
BTW, I thought that the reason my digital radio breaks up is the same reason why my landline telephone breaks up - that the WiFi broadband for domestic subscribers here isn't sufficient for the number of subscribers so it gets overloaded at certain times of day...
We have a DAB radio in our bedroom (top of a three storey house) and reception is fine and we have DAB radio on our stereo in the dining room downstairs and reception is diabolical - even with the aerial. Dh has connected it up (much wire and lifting up of carpets and drilling holes in the ceiling ) to the PC on the middle floor of the house.
The technology used for DAB was created in the 1980's. The technology can't cope with digital quality sound and a large number of stations using the DAB platform. (I work in radio). It will be replaced by DAB+ or something similar. Buy an internet radio, you over 2000 stations and all good quality sound.
So it's not just me then! Habbibu I went on that site and put in my postcode and it said there was a problem with my postcode? Couldn't quite work out whether it was a technical hitch or whether it was telling me there wasn't coverage in my area - I live in Glasgow FFS!! I tried my parents in another major city in England and it said the same thing.
Isn't it annoying when something is trumpeted as being the absolute ultimate in reception/quality and has so MUCH MONEY pumped into it and it doesn't blinking work!
I feel a letter to the BBC coming on!
They're going to really be in trouble if their digital TV coverage is as bad - especially when they switch off the analogue signal!
