How do I know if there is Digital radio coverage in my area?
Most centres of population in the UK now have Digital Radio coverage and signal coverage is constantly being further extended. A useful coverage checker is available at www.getdigitalradio.com. Simply enter your Post Code to display the Digital Radio stations available in your area.
I can't pick up any Digital Radio stations on my Digital radio.
Ensure the antenna fitted on your product is fully extended, and the product is suitably positioned to receive Digital Radio signals. You may find careful re-positioning will help. When using a personal Digital Radio with earphones, ensure the earphone cable is fully unwound as this acts as the antenna.
Make sure the product is set to "Digital Radio" mode. Some products have a dual Band tuner - Digital Radio and FM.

Will I need a new aerial to receive Digital Radio?
In-home digital radios usually feature a telescopic or wire aerial and providing you live within the coverage area this is usually sufficient to pick up a signal. If you are receiving a clear signal an external aerial is not required.
