What is DAB and can I receive it?
This stands for Digital Audio Broadcasting (the name of the system). To listen, you need a DAB digital radio - you can't receive digital only stations on a traditional FM/AM radio. Currently, around 94% of the UK can receive DAB digital radio. To find out if your area is covered, use the postcode checker on this page. The next phase of the BBC’s digital radio network coverage plan will bring 2 million people into the coverage area with an additional 162 transmitters. This will extend and improve coverage of the BBC’s national radio stations on DAB from 93% to 97% of the UK population by the end of 2015.
