      I thought DAB was on the way out.

      It's still going although a majority of the stations are in glorious mono these days. :)

      420 million audience worldwide is not shoddy. DAB has the potential for superb noiseless transmission, ,pity its not being used to full advantage.

      Nationally DAB+ is a bit of a joke especially if you live along the south-east and East Anglian coastal areas because there is unlikely to be any service any time soon as Normandy and Belgium got to 11A first.

      I'm surprised we have it at all.

      DRDB chief: 'DAB+ is a red herring' | TechRadar

      I have it, in the midlands.

      Digital radio in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia

      As of September 2016, there were over 30 DAB+ stations being broadcast in the UK.[42] In March 2017 the Brighton mutliplex became UK's first to only broadcast DAB+.[43]

      The Department of Culture, Media and Sport published minimum specifications for digital radio receivers in the UK in February 2013 which states that a receiver sold in the UK must be capable of decoding a DAB+ stream of up to 144 capacity units[nb 2].[44] Radios must support DAB+ to receive the digital tick mark.[45]
