Default Planet Rock moving on DAB.

Anyone else listen to Planet Rock on DAB?

They've been banging on about moving the frequency and to retune your digital radio. So I did a retune tonight aka factory reset and my radio can't find the new Planet Rock.
I checked coverage for my postcode and yes it is still listed so it shouldn't be an issue. But my DAB radio can't find the new frequency.

Technology...... MEH

I've got an am/fm radio in the garage and that has crap stations too.
All BBC stations, even the local ones.

In the end i bought the Makita with DAB after going through all to many portable radio's touch controls don't work with greasey (spelin ) fingers others either just didn't last long or fell off the shelf and broke or weren't loud enough
The Makita is good and loud has push button's and weighs a ton another bonus is it can use my Makita drill batteries keeping them in good order it even sounds good for a DAB radio
Expensive yes but it's what I should have got in the first place

Yeah had the same here, had to try the retune with radio in different positions around the place before it found the channel. Seems very sensitive to reception but done ok now.

Can't help with the planet rock thing but I do like my little DAB radio. I got this to take away on the bike cos fm stations are just shite

It's just the job for that purpose, being less than the size of a credit card but I just recently found out that when it's plugged into the auxilary port of my stereo the sound is tip top too. Cool

I've got a "Pure ONE" DAB radio and it seems to only have autotune, no manual tuning.
I'll have a poke around online to see if anyone has a fix.

We only listen to Planet Rock in the house and we have no TV.

I think that is the remedy, thanks oldmax.
I'll try that tomorrow.

Had the same one for about four years, cracking sound but reception can be poor at times.

Got a DAB adaptor in the van, at least I get Planet Rock most of the time but since the retune I seem to be getting more dead spots.

The DAB adapter sounds like a good idea will have to look into that

Or just stick to Hayseed Dixie on the CD player (keeps me calm and almost happy when stuck in car)
