Wrong horse, wrong course.

So now : *if* we get an indoor signal, we toss our DAB receivers into landfill and buy DAB+ replacements.

Too many platforms. They all cost money.

DAB+ could be justified as the *final* platform if our money is spent on 99% nationwide *indoor* coverage.

DAB is a total mess in the U.K. Poor coverage meaning indoor reception is normally annoying and intermittent. We've stuck in the main to DAB while the rest of the World moves forward with DAB +.
My main personal gripe is the number of stations in Mono, we waited years for FM to offer Stereo and I find it insulting that any provider offers a mono music program, there's even one now on DAB.+ in mono.

Unfortunately it's all down to what the commercial operators are prepared to pay!
