Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Durris transmitter area
Do you mean that you get digital radio services using your Humax Freeview box? Freeview transmit up to 24 digital radio services, see http://www.freeview.co.uk…els, but they are not DAB services.
DAB uses a different way of broadcasting radio services and different transmitters, but the service is not available everywhere. I gather from Huntly Radio, for Radio in Huntly, Aberdeenshire, UK that DAB is available in the Huntly, Aberdeen area but reception depends on proximity to the transmitter and any intervening hills, tall buildings, etc.

Linda: Although your location is seen to be well inside of the official coverage area given for the Knockmore DAB transmitter (15 miles) and to a lesser extent where reception from the DAB transmitters at Durris (35 miles) and also Meldrum (14 miles) is concerned, however in the case of Knockmore and Durris the signal paths from both these transmitters are indicated as suffering from multiple obstructions prior to reaching the Huntly area, Medrum also being affected but to a much lesser degree.
This being the case would suggest that the comment made by MikeP in the latter part of his reply is very likely to apply in your particular situation, and especially so where DAB reception is intended to be via a portable radio, therefore I would suggest it most advisable to make a few local enquiries as to the reliability of a DAB reception in your area before making any purchases.
By the way I used the Huntly Hotel, town square as a test code, if you are located at a higher level than this then obviously that somewhat improves the situation, I would though still make some local enquiries as I am very doubtful as to whether or not a portable DAB radio is a viable device to use in your area.
