Sharon Alger-Wells:

Does it have metal sides as well? That's more important. Why can't she have an external aerial, is it a site limitation or is it because you think a chimney is needed?
The transmitter is virtually due East from that location, does she have a clear view in that direction and if so, through any windows from inside the home.
What sort of aerial is being used at present?

We'd need a full postcode to check which transmitter(s) and multiplexes you might receive at your location and what the predicted reception was like.

Hi
No Times Radio on DAB on any receiver apart from online.
Is it coming?
Stockland is always late with new tv channels. Is it the same with radio?
Thanks

davidp: Times Radio is on the SDL multiplex (it appeared last week). If you can already receive Absolute 80s then retune/rescan your DAB radio and Times Radio should appear in your station list.
