How can I improve my DAB signal / DAB reception?
1. Extend the aerial fully on your DAB radio and position it vertically
2. Try placing the radio next to a window
3. Try moving the radio to an upstairs room to compare the signal there
4. Steelwork can affect the signal, so move the radio out of a steel building!
5. Consider borrowing an external aerial (if you can) to help improve reception - or go for a loft-mounted 5/6 element design for maximum signal gain
6. Do a postcode check to determine which stations you should pick up - if the result suggests you won't be able to pick up a signal, an external aerial is unlikely to help in this situation.
