Dab Radio Tuning

11 posts in this topic

I can't find anything in the manual about DAB service on the radio (61 plate new-shape Focus Zetec). I have found and enabled the DAB service through the menu and I get the DAB Symbols and can receive DAB info on the stations.

My question is about search and tuning: If I search when in DAB mode it skips through the FM frequencies as normal. Surely there must be a menu list of digital stations instead of tuning? Or is that not how this DAB works?

Thanks for any advice - I'm a DAB newbie!!!

Don't select the 'DAB link' option as this will switch between DAB and FM when the signal/coverage fluctuates. This gives more annoying drop outs then when you lose the digital signal alone.

Hi, must as mine never goes to FM, although I rarely drive out of town these days. Went to Tun Wells the other day though and it held onto the station fine. Is DAB actually running at full strength because I thought it wasn't and maybe the signal varies from transmitter to transmitter, the same as digital TV?
