    having just got hold of the arcam DAB, I was a bit miffed when I could hardly get any reception with the aerail supplied out of the box .

    I didn't really consider myself to be in such a bad reception area and dont' really have that much problem with FM reception.

    So can anyone recommend a good DAB aerial at a reasonable price and perhaps give an idea of how to set these up? I'm presuming like a tv aerial the higher the better and so running a length of 50ohm cable up to the loft and then putting some sort of aerial there but any help would be appreciated.

    I hope I haven't put anyonne off because on the stations I do get a good signal the quality is unreal and easily surpasses FM.

    I've got an Arcam A10DAB tuner at home, the supplied aerial was pretty useless. I bought a Antiference DAB aerial for £25, they also do a non-directional version for £15, mine is directional and needs pointing towards Crystal Palace transmitter.

    I bought it from the Videologic website shop, but there are loads of other places that sell them aswell for the same price.

    I can highly recommend it, I can get 54 radio stations on it (last count). It has it's own direct feed from the roof to the back of the Arcam unit with no joins.

    ED: Just noticed it's the same one as the above link. Just cheaper I think.
