Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB)
The new digital revolution of DAB is the latest development in radio. DAB stands for Digital Audio Broadcasting and involve technologies that broadcast sound digitally across radio waves. This means audiences enjoy digital quality sound that's hiss and crackle free.
DAB can also transmit many services in a single area of airspace that takes almost the same space as just one FM station, giving listeners a huge choice of radio entertainment. From rock to R&B, classical to country, trance to talk radio, for sports fans, news hounds, soul lovers and jazz buffs, in most areas you'll get at least double the number of stations available on AM/FM. In some areas it's even more!
