I live in a stone built farmhouse (DAB radio signals do no travel through stone Walls!!) in Gwynedd there is no local transmitter that doesn't have a mountain between us and it, so as with 90% reliable Freeview our signal comes from South Wales across cardigan Bay.

Freeview comes via a high gain rooftop aerial, DAB is a very hit and miss affair with precise location of the radio making all the difference, but I had a Yamaha mini system in a fixed shelf location and a Roberts portable that simply had to be balanced on a pile of books (and a chicken sacrificed) before it worked.

Intermittent burbling on all four of my DAB radios (I won two otherwise I'd come to the conclusion they're not really worth owning here) simply a fact of life. (the others a Revo Pico and a Pure Oasis Flow are on window ledges in optimum locations and weather permitting seem to function 80% well 90% of the time.

Posty arrived half an hour ago with two of these (took risk and saved on postage)fitted one to the fixed Yamaha and another to the Roberts which now has to be in a fixed location (the only drawback I can see with these).

RESULT!!

Roberts in a location where it worked badly is now working well (though I need to see what happens when the next Atlantic High comes in) Yamaha in a location where signal sweeps previously picked up no DAB now working well.

Good product

and who knows one day may be DAB might almost be as good as FM.

PS DAB car radios!!! in Snowdonia!!!! yer 'avin a laff

Having bought a pioneer x- hm70dab system I triied out the plug in long wire that came with it , it was almost useless and I gave up trying to get a station and gave up on dab radio, living in a six in a block set of flats on the ground floor I had visions of having to get a roof aerial to get dab again , but I decided to try this device and boy am I glad I did, it works amazingly well , connect to device and run wire straight up wall and move a little bit to get rid of the burbling noise and your all set to go, I now get all channels crystal clear with no probs, BUY WITH CONFIDENCE ! !

The world seems to be full of dab deadspots. Miles of ribbon ariel can't find it. Then you plug this curios little device into the back of your set and channels appear! Quite wonderful. No trouble to fit. Half a minute to adjust position to best effect and bob is once more your uncle. Compact cable arrangement. Simple instructions. Best hi-fi buy i have made in a while.

Had real trouble getting a decent signal with the locatin of the aerial we had previously. We would usually only get a handful of stations and even those gradually faded into the underwater burble you get you dodgy DAB reception. Plugged this aerial in and instantly improved the signal and now we get about 50 odd stations and a rock solid signal. Massively impressed with this aerial.

Radio: Acoustic Solutions "Portal 2" DAB/FM v1.3
Location: Ground floor, Kitchen, possibly poor location for signal, see FM readings.

Listed below are the Before and After Signal Strength readings. The manufacturers mark "5" (out of a maximum of 16) as "adequate" for good reception. As you see, with the supplied metal telescopic aerial, I've had to use this radio in FM only for several years. After fitting the Rouse Electronics aerial, the radio is now fully usable in DAB mode. The right-angle adaptor had to be removed as the connector is recessed into the back of the radio.

DAB, Before and After: 61 stations
Preset - Station Name - Before - After Signal Strength (adequate: "5", full scale: "16")
1 - BBC Local Radio - 0/1 - 15
2 - BBC Radio 2 - 2 - 10/11
3 - BBC Radio 3 - 2 - 9/10
4 - BBC Radio 4 - 2 - 10/11
5 - BBC World Service - 1 - 9
6 - Classic FM - 0/1 - 14

FM
1 - BBC Local Radio - 4/5 - 7/8
2 - BBC Radio 2 - 6/7 - 7/8
3 - BBC Radio 3 - 4/5 - 5
4 - BBC Radio 4 - 3 - 3
5 - as preset 1
6 - Classic FM - 4/5 - 5

Conclusions: slightly improves FM, great improvement for DAB, and probably even better results if this radio was located elsewhere. A PURE DAB radio on the first floor picks up 84 stations. However, this aerial has enabled me to use this radio in DAB by default, so I'm well pleased with the result. Thanks.

Ok - so I bought this because the new DAB radio i got in the kitchen was getting really poor DAB reception. Crackling, burbling. I could not listen to DAB at all!

So I get this aerial and plug it in...

First off I got no reception at all. Dismay!!

Then I notice the connector middle wire is not quite straight - so I fixed this and tried again. Now I get a signal, full strength. However - as I now tightened up the screw connector I lost the signal again. The whole thing seemed very critical to this connection to the back of my radio. With some perseverance (maybe a couple of minutes) of jiggling the connector until the signal reappears, then tightening up a bit, I eventually got it fully tightened with the signal at full strength.

Now - its wonderful. I have perfect full strength reception on the DAB channels. Beautiful clarity.

I wrote this review because of the problems I had getting the aerial to work initially. Apparently due to the signal strength being very sensitive to the connection at the radio itself. This may be that there is a fault with my radio? I don't know. Anyway - the point is if you don't get an immediate brilliant result, then persevere. A little light jiggling of the connector at the back of the radio made all the difference for me.
