Right so I live in South East London

But yet most London Stations on the DAB band keep cutting out especially Capital FM so have to switch to normal FM.


Does anyone else get this?


I would prefer to use DAB rather than FM due to the extra choice of stations.

Don't know about that SKEV.
I am in Yorkshire and have changed the aerial for a stubby so it does not catch the garage roof and I can get and keep all DAB stations. Sorry !

DAB Service Linking


Note:The DAB service linking is as perdefault off.
Note:Service linking allows
cross-referencing to other corresponding
frequencies of the same station, for example
FM and other DAB ensembles.

Note:The system will automaticallychange to another corresponding station if
the current one becomes unavailable, for
example when leaving the coverage area.
Switching DAB service linking on and off.
See General Information (page 58).

Thank you will go and switch the service link on in the morning when I head off to work.

Mine keeps cutting out too so this is of great help to me. Having looked in the book mine seems to be referred to as Regional Mode - 'Regional Mode On : Prevents random alternative frequency switches' p.175, so will turn RDS Regional on and see if that works. Thanks D-Z

Thank you D-Z, I can rarely make sense of the technical speak. I will switch it on as there is certainly drift on FM when travelling long distance.

The bee sting arial is just the answer I need Specialk. My wife can never recognise the car in a public car park ( checks out all the black cars as we have Panther Black). Having a reasonably colour arial top will make it easier for her!!!
Splendid idea.
Thanks
