The ones who decide how the money is spent are not Arqiva not the BBC. In this instance it seems the government (DCMS) are the ones traking the decision.
So we await their further announcements together with any factual information gathered rather than anything suggested by reporters in the media whoi so often mis-interpret what is said.
Why has my DABSIGNAL got so poor,
I can only get 5 Live , Classic, radio 1 radio 4
And 2 others I don't want.
Is there anything I can do,
Or is it back to F/M , Medium Wave, Long Wave.
Please HELP IF YOU CAN. OR
IS IT THREE DAB RADIOS IN THE DUSTY BIN.
Thanks for the rapid response,
WILL IT GET BETTER FROM BEING GOOD TO AS IT IS KNOW VERY VERY POOR,
SORRY TO COMPLAIN BUT THATS THE FACTS
TURN UP THE WICK!
By 100% PLEASE.
OVER and OUT.
PHIL in DERBY...
I live in an area of Yorkshire where I receive DABservices with a signal strength for the BBC National, Digital 1 and Humberside muxes at 100% on our home DAB/FM Pure radios - kitchen, bathroom etc - but only 85% for the Yorkshire mux.
All these DAB/FM radios on a rescan this week show an extra station but only Smooth Radio UK (Digital 1) at 80 kbps and 100% signal strength shows up on the station listing and not Smooth Radio (Yorkshire mux) at 128 kbps and presumably at around 85% signal strength. All the radios have all the other stations from the Yorkshire mux including Capital Yorkshire, Heart Yorkshire and the UCB stations showing on the station listing and I can tune into these stations but not Smooth from this regional mux.
I have not come across this before as in the case where Gold was on both the Humberside mux and the Yorkshire mux I was able to tune into both transmissions and similarly in the West Midlands where I could receive BBC WM both from the Birmingham and Wolverhampton muxes.
I wonder if it is something to do with the codings on the respective Smooth services.
