    Never mind DAB, here in Germany my analogue radio only seems to receive 1980's music.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    I’ve three receivers, (one car and two portable). Outside of London it is so patchy, it only works when the car is stationary or inside a building, it is limited to certain areas. Furthermore, the bit-rate on some stations makes the sound worse than FM.

    We like Dab. Similar to Sole or Plaice. An economical fish as it's plentiful in our waters and not on any endangered lists. You proles should eat more of it to spare the cod for palace tables.

    That's because you live in Bavaria

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    You're probably right. The other day walking down the street I thought... ah a funeral. Nope, just ten black cars parked along the street.

    Colour will come to Bavaria. We can hope.

    totally agree - I drive between the north west and Edinburgh a lot. Literally no reception through most of the lakes or the Scottish countryside. Plus what stations are available are fairly crap. I listen mainly to planet rock. Their playlist has not changed much over the past 20 years. In 20 years their playlist will consist of songs by dead people.
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    I live outside London. Have DAB in the car (Alfa), no problem with 5LiveSX, which is about the only digital-only station I listen to. The other stations in the car are also the DAB versions. No problems at all. At home, DAB radios work fine too.
