    Anyone know if UK DAB radios work in Australia?

     

    It's been a while since this has been discussed on PiA and I see that some DAB service was introduced a couple of years back. Has anyone tried a UK DAB recently?

    I can't see it working there ,but don't know for sure .I few years ago we did a £100 car rally ,we set off in france, then on to switzerland ,italy, spain and the back through france .not that any of this matters ,what does matter is we fit a dab radio in the car and no normal aerial ,but we never got a signal after we left the uk at all and ended up with no radio for 5 days:biglaugh:

    My one works perfectly, bought in UK.

     

    Just make sure it is DAB+

     

    (Please, if people don't know the answer don't just guess). The fact that your (cooler king) radio may not work DOES NOT mean that UK DAB radios don't work in Aus. A few extra words, like mine doesn't work makes all the difference as per Westie.

    Yes as previously stated it depends if it's DAB +, mine unfortunately isn't and is currently being sent back to the UK for use with another family member :(

    Took me while to find that out the help centre here was rubbish, finally got in touch with the UK one and with in 5 mins had the correct answer!

     

    You can get upgrades on some models if it's a software issue but the hardware has to be there in the first place for it to work!

    Before I came, I read up on plenty of information which said DAB and DAB+ were not compatible here. Your condescending manner is completely uncalled for.

     

    Try and be nice, good manners cost nothing.

    Did you read/ask on an authorised site like

     

    WorldDMB - Country Information for DAB, DAB+ and DMB - Australia or general blogs and or/wiki?

     

    I wasn't being condescending.

     

    I knew what radio functionality I wanted, I researched, emailed the company (confirming it would work here) and got it. And I have no problems, I am sorry if you weren't so lucky.

    It's only a chuffing radio!!

     

    No idea what DAB radio's are.

    Managed to live my life without them so not essential to me.

     

    Blimey! Most things have a radio receiver stuck in them nowadays!!

     

    Chucked the one I had OUT of the bat and put 2 / 2 ways in. VHF and 27mhz - far more fun:biglaugh::biglaugh:

    Tyke, what a Luddite :biglaugh:

     

    DAB radios are simply superb, remember going from tape to CD, the difference? It's like that plus more.

     

    Also, you do get more stations on Digital Radio.

    Matt - is it your DAB radio that can get UK stations?

     

    Would you mind posting up the make and model so I can look for one when I'm in Blighty later in the year?

    I have posted it, reply 10, page 1.

     

    Yes that radio DOES get UK, and BBC Listen again etc, but via Internet not DAB+. You need a wifi connection.

     

    It is an outstanding device, TYKE and Stevo don't know what they are missing.....
