Disconnect the power at the battery and reset the radio.
Make sure you have the security code first.

[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]I have just reset all the stations on my neighbour’s portable DAB radio as they all were now locked on to R2. Modern electronic devices now contain computer chips, and you know how often PCs play up and need a reboot.[/font][/size][/color]

Mines doing it on the national stations like Capital, XFM etc. I have also noticed the DAB radio in the house playing up too so maybe some frequencies have changed or something?

A lot of the problem with DAB is that it's already an obsolete system.
Also i believe that the standard DAB aerials in cars are not up to the job.
DAB is very sensitive to aerial directionality, and if the signal falls below a certain strengh just drops off unlike standard FM radio (which just gets crackly with bad signals)
Read these articles for a full rundown.
