DAB section?

Post by Polecat » Thu Feb 13, 2020 9:51 am

Interesting discussions on Pirate DAB in Ireland and a DAB build in the Netherlands are amongst other topics. Wondered if DAB deserves it's own section?

Does pirate DAB exist in the Netherlands? Pretty sure it's all legal there, other than possibly some sproadic tests.

There's been about 3 threads related to it in the last 5 and a half years!

....So in a word, no.

It's a good question, however it's a no from me.

The radio subsections are all regional and already cover all bands - apart from the internet radio section so adding a sole DAB section might cause some confusion.
Pirate Radio's not a problem, it's a solution

According to the Dutch poster, his rig is set outside the legal freq band so yes.

Thanks, makes sense. I didn't consider the regional structure of the board and DAB is just like FM in that respect.
