[access-uk] Re: digital radio

I don't know why, but in the Birmingham area we used to get beat 106 from Glasgow. I'm sure that it was probably on other local multiplexes around the country too. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Jackie Cairns" <cairnsplace@xxxxxxx>

Billy, it's Jackie here, not Tris. You can't get DAB stations from Scotland in England, or vice versa, unless they are national ones like the BBC or the multiplex with Core and Classic FM on it.

Hope that helps.

Tristram, I'm living in Scotland. The question is: Would I be able to get Scottish DAB stations if I was say in Blackpool?.

I visit sunny Blackpool regularly, at least 3 times a year, and keep missing my favourite radio stations in Scotland.

Graham is quite right in suggest you are unlikely to get much joy from a
DAB set in France picking up UK stations.  The DAB system is a network
of relatively low power transmitters known as a Single Frequency Network
that make up the coverage.  I forget exactly what the range is but it is
not anywhere near that of traditional AM or even FM transmitters that
blast out coverage.  Suffice to say those trasmissions are not likely to
reach the shores of France in any form you are likely to be able to pick
up reliably.  I don't believe DAB has taken off in any great way in
France although other European countries do use it.  In the UK we use
band three (what the old 405 line TVs used to use) for our DAB whilst in
Europe they can often use L band as well so sets brought here would not
necessarily recieve European stations as many cheaper sets do not
includee L band coverage.
