Good to know about DAB+ reception:
DAB+ radio reception works differently than FM radio reception.
FM often still connects to radio stations with a weak transmitter, albeit with a rustling or crackling sound.
DAB+ reception works digitally and if there is not enough signal on the spot, you will not hear anything. It has no noise or cracking like FM reception. This is not due to the radio, but to the fact that there is too little DAB+ signal at the location.
DAB+ rule: no reception = no sound.
With DAB+ reception, there can be a substantial difference in reception level between one location and "a few meters / yards further away". In case of a locally weak DAB+ signal, it is important to find the best possible location by moving the radio slightly.
Even if you move to another place in the country, it’s recommended to do a full scan on-site. This way you can see which DAB+ channels can be received there.
