Anyone buying a new radio today should make sure that it can receive not only FM, but also DAB+. Would you like to know if digital radio is available where you live? Click here to find out if there is digital reception in your area.
It is especially important to realise that an FM aerial is not suited to digital reception. Portable radios generally have a built-in aerial. To listen to digital radio at home, a good interior aerial or – even better – an exterior aerial, is recommended.
As digital radio is broadcast on VHF band III in Switzerland, a band III TV aerial can be used, with the vertical polarisation set for digital reception. DAB+ car radios also require a DAB+ aerial, as most of the FM aerials that are fitted to cars as standard do not permit digital reception.
