The world has been listening to broadcasting without wires for over 90 years and in that time, not much has changed. Ok, FM stereo is a far cry from mono SW (Short Wave) frequencies but still we switch on our radio, tune to our favourite station, sit back and relax!
Enter the world of Digital Audio Broadcasting or DAB radio! So, WHAT IS DAB? Without getting technical it simply means - Better quality, more choice and more information! In practice, it is far simpler than your normal FM/AM radio! No dial just a big button to scan with and a lovely big screen packed with information about the station you're listening to, including the presenter, website info and often the playlist!
You remember when you got your new digital TV or freeview box? Before you could use it, you scanned for channels in your local area. Then to watch "BBC3" you just clicked the channel up button or chose from a list of TV channels... DAB is exactly the same! You get it out of the box, perform a scan and hey presto! All the stations you can receive are stored! Then all you have to do to listen is flick through the list and choose the one you want! (The Voice obviously)!
No, there is a vast array of radio stations to listen to. All the BBC stations are there, including the ones you would normally find on freeview like BBC 6 music or on AM like BBC world service. There are also lots of independent stations like "Planet Rock, Absolute Radio, Classic FM, Talk Sport and many many more. Whatever music or radio you're into DAB will have it!
Yes! Most modern cars are equipped with DAB radios, just look for the DAB digital radio logos!
No! There are many "add on" DAB radios that are as small as a sat nav unit that just mounts onto the dash or windscreen without tools or wires! It sends a signal to your current stereo (like when you listen to your mp3 player) and you just tune in like a normal station. The most popular (and the one favoured my most of the team here at The Voice) is the PURE highway.
