Converting external old vhf antenna to combo fm and dab

Recommended Posts


Depends how far you are, line of sight ?.... just a wire will do as all some dab+ radios come with. If little ways out a telescopic whip antenna will do. For us with line of sight either the wire not even uncurled... or whip antenna not even extended does fine. Full reception. If you have a screw f type antenna connector you can pick up a telescopic whip antenna from likes of sangean for $10 posted !


if mobile, pure for instance and pioneer also now provide a small stick on antenna both work surprisingly well in dab+ receiving range (check the abc reception charts)


as a digital radio early adopter (mobile, portable and in home) even prior to going live and with previous gen trials as well I can attest to capability of all these :)
