There is (as you know) a DAB transmitter for Ceredigion at Blaenplwyf. I live at SY24 5BT (Llandre) and I have a new top-of-the-range receiver which picks up a good FM signal from Blaenplwyf on an indoor aerial. However, on DAB even the stronger signal of the BBC's DAB stations is unstable and constantly subject to intolerable interference. I had been warned that the British DAB standard was a very compromised and unsatisfactory broadcasting medium when I bought this radio. However, my radio is fortunately also capable of picking up the allegedly improved DAB+ signal. I must ask when this promised usable form of digital radio broadcasting will replace the utterly inadequate DAB signal broadcast at present? Frankly, the current DAB service must be regarded as a ridiculous waste of time and money, and is in urgent need of replacement.
