Worthwhile improving DAB reception?


Well-known Member
Ive got a Pure Evoke and the signal strength is only 18-21/100. Would it be worth my while putting a loft aerial up or is this too marginal to get any improvements?

On the post code checker it says I shouldn't get DAB reception.

Getting a directional aerial will certainly improve the sound.
I'm surprised you are getting any listen-able sound at all with that signal strength.
Although getting 100% won't improve a low bit transmission, it will at least mean you are not getting any distortion.

I'm not getting much of a reception at all to be honest on the DAB. FM is fairly decent. I was just going to run a co-ax up to the loft and get a Maplin DAB aerial in there.

I use a DAB aerial in my loft and this pulls in even the London stations as well as Essex and Kent and its a way better signal.
But the FMs very poor so I use another FM dipole aerial to.
