Much stronger DAB signal...
I imagine it's since the switch to full digital in my area, but over the last month or so, I have noticed a huge improvement in the strength of the DAB signal at home. Due to the configuration of where I live, large parts of the place got no DAB signal before, with the best signal being fortuitously by the bed, ideal for the bedside radio. But even that was variable before, it seemed to depend on the weather (is that possible? How is DAB transmitted? can it possibly vary with atmospheric pressure?!.... I'd love someone to explain!)... sometimes dropping to only 2 or 3 bars, coming and going, and producing those horrible burbling sounds
But of late - the full 6 bars all the time... AND for the first time, the other DAB machine in the kitchen is picking up a signal - quite a strong one (before, it could only be used to play SD card recordings of TTN etc).
Anyone else noticed the same? And can anyone confirm that the change is to do with "going digital" - I presume it must be.
In which case: hurrah!
