    Hi All,

    I live in an area which has poor radio reception (FM and DAB mainly)

    Whilst I realise I could buy an aerial for the loft / roof this doesn't really help with portable radios and ipod docks with dab functionality

    Does anyone know if it's possible to buy a DAB aerial with a repeater. i.e. I install the aerial and then it acts as it's own aerial for within the house (much like a wifi repeater)

    Any ideas anyone ???

    Many thanks

    CJ

    You can not buy a DAB repeater aerial. Its use would be illegal in the UK, as you would be transmitting broadcast radio frequencies without having the required licence.
