Pocket handheld DAB radios
You can buy carry-around personal handheld digital radios that fit in your pocket. Sometimes the headphone cable doubles up as the aerial, whilst other handheld DAB radios use an extending aerial to pick up DAB stations. You can often see what song is currently being played, or which show is currently airing.

Personal handheld DAB radios are useful when you're on the move. National digital radio stations can be picked up well on a train or in the car across large areas of the UK, particularly in and around large cities.
