DAB multiplex pages now have coverage maps | Blogs

I live in a bit of a DAB dead spot here, half way between the Daventry and Aspley heath transmitters. Reception is bearable, but flaky in the car.

I've lately been playing with a cheap Realtek BAB dongle and as an experiment can it through my 2M/70cm colinear.

Strewth! I'm pulling in the Wiltshire multiplexes with ease! Over 70 channels, without having to resort to directional antennae.

This has made me think that some slightly more sophisticated receivers with slightly better gain and more effective antennae will go a long way towards quelling many of the complaints about DAB.
