1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

My car has a MW FM and DAB digital radio in it, I have to say it is completely and utterly useless in the NW of England, at home we can pick up some but not all DAB channels

I use a little portable DAB radio in the van, works OK down here, but on further travels it loses signal regularly.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

A number of people with the same vehicle as mine have mentioned the inbuilt window antenna strips are utterly useless at pulling in DAB signals.

The technology behind the reception of DAB on the move appears to be almost as poor as the bit rates.

I had a hire car with a dab radio in it for a week recently. The one station I actually wanted to listen to (Planet Rock) isnt carried anywhere near here, so I ended up listening to the Now70s station. It was ok but the lack of channels round here certainly would dissuade me from investing in a dab system. Ive reverted to my mp3s in the car :D

Nah - I binned all my vinyl when we moved house. It was all horrendously worn and scratched. Give me cds anytime. :D
