Chris Country DAB+

Post by pe1etr » 20 Apr 2016 15:14

Found this a couple of days ago (10D NE Wales W Cheshire),

I only spotted this morning it was DAB+.

The "AAC" on the display of my Roberts Sports DAB 2 confirms it is DAB+.

I'll upload a video and a WAV audio file later.

32 kb/s DAB+ sounds better than 180kb/s MP2
IMHO.
I'll post the recording soon.
Can't you resolve DAB+ with your equipment?
Try Andi's DAB Player with your RTL dongle ;)

Thanks Andy.

I found it on Sunday when I tested the new radio, but didn't notice it was DAB+ until today. I thought it sounded good though.
