In car DAB is pathetic;reception is pants, quality is pathetic and many music stations are only in mono sound. DRM and DRM+ is better on mw lw sw and fm as it covers much larger areas than dab with fewer transmitters needed bigger homogenous coverage and more robust reception and near fm quality on am bands with stereo and cd quality stereo too. Ofcom the bbc and commercial stations and radio manufacturers are stupid in sticking with DAB and its poor relation dabplus. If I were in govt I would go for drm on am bands and drm+ on fm bands and push radio manufacturers and broadcasters to it;current trials have worked well within europe the uk and worldwide so whats stopping the UK from taking it on?
