DAB uses multiplexes to group services together.The BBC network stations, e.g. BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 4are grouped together in a single multiplex. Nations and Local radio services are carried on a mix of commercial multiplexes. This is commonly caused by the FM signals being bounced off objects or hillsides and reaching your radio by different paths. Its technical name is multipath distortion. It is often worst in hilly or heavily built-up areas. Indoor portables are especially susceptible. Have to say I dont listen to the radio on a Friday or Saturday evening as much as I used to a good few years ago.Sports Extra is a secondary DAB service of Radio 5 Live, and not always available on air. When the BBC has additional sports content, it can be found next to Radio 5 Live on DAB radio only.The 5Sports Extra schedule is available online. External aerials are also available for FM radio and will significantlyimprove reception.The aerial and cables need to be well maintained and you will need a radio that has an option to connect an external aerial.

Other examples of obstructions are newly built property nearby, or construction equipment, like a crane. If obstructions are too problematic to overcome and/or permanent, you might want to investigate if you can reposition your aerial and retune to a different transmitter. Another solution would be using another way of receiving services, like Freesat for example. Obstructions between the aerial and transmitter can cause problems. Trees are the most common obstructions. They can affect the signal. This can be greater at different times of the year (when there are more leaves), when wet or in high winds.There are all kinds of aerials available on the market and some which are specific to certain frequencies. A wideband aerial is a popular choice, although there are other aerials available. A qualified aerial installer with local knowledge will be able to advise further. Poor DAB reception can also be caused by equipment used in the vehicle. For example, phone chargers or dash cams sometimes cause interference and affectyour radio signal. Try unplugging the items to see if one of them is causing any interference. If you are experiencing pixellation or picture break up, it may be that your signal is too strong as this often presents itself similarly to a weak signal. This is likely to happen if you live close to a transmitter.
