I find all my needs radio-wise are pretty much covered with iplayer, freeview and a mobile phone that has an FM radio - especially useful for someone in a wheelchair and who likes to listen to the radio in bed. how can dab with it's bulk and expensive batteries be an improvement?
Hi,if you are happy with your FMradio leave well alone,DAB radios are power hungry and need to be plugged into the mains or use the recharable power packs. There are reception problems, my hifi dab radio needed a £150. external antena to work at all.FM will be in use for years to come, change when you have to.
If it ain't broke don't fix it - FM works well for most people most of the time. The cost for most people to replace 5, or 10 , or 20 devices that work on FM is exhorbitant - for poor , patchy DB coverage at best , and the 'joy' of loads of new stations. I begin to suspect the big push to go to DB is for the Government to sell the space in the radio spectrum for the next (5G ) mobile networks in a few years time, to make loads of money !
