Default DAB Radios

BAck home I had a DAB radio, it was class, I coud listen to all my favourite stations, in particular Radio 6 (UK) which you can only usually listen to on the internet,

Is there way you can get a DAB to work over here and listen to english stations?

Cheers all.

I'd be interested in this as well. The only way I've found is to get them over the net.
I had a little portable DAB that I used all the time in the UK. I've a funny feeling they won't work over here

even if there were Digital Radio transmissions over here. which I doubt. It certainly wouldn't be english radio stations. You'll have to listen to them over the net.

check this out.

http://www.rokulabs.com/products_soundbridgeradio.php

This is what I use. It connects to the internet and is smaller than lugging your PC around

Works in the UK with no problem at all. Sometimes the BBC blocks out non UK ip addresses and you can't access but if you look at the forum on the site it lists how to get around it if you need to.

Only available in the US but I've ordered them to be delivered to Singapore and they work fine.

Currently in the UK and works fine - just lurking around here coz I'm thinking of moving to the sandpit.
