May be an odd question, but do pirates ever show up on DAB or are they still working off FM only?

See two earlier posts - these are Dublin pirates on FM.

Our radio industry is in a real mess thanks to BAI. All the DAB trials, including the one still running in Cork and still no future for digital radio. look at the uk. About to launch small scale DAB. hundreds of stations. This is great for listeners. Something for everyone without having to go on TuneIn. Who are these stupid people running our radio into the ground. Hanging on to their FM frequency thinking that is going to save them. If they don't get in DAB when 5G arrives they will be washed away with the competition.

What is FreeDAB's coverage area? I was able to pick it up on the north side of the tunnel the other day, but it would cut in and out every few seconds (even when the car was stopped at the roundabout, which was strange). Never spotted it anywhere else.

Maybe they should offer them buy one, get one free? Put your FM station on DAB, and you are permitted one additional digital station (with no strict output rules) on the platform.

Just realised, the Eirdab trial in Cork finishes this month. Will they be permitted an extension, or is that just it?

Hi Paul can you give me the exact day it was happening .as we had issues with our broadband provider last week this would cause the cutting in and out effect when stationary.

Thinking of buying a pocket digital radio if such a thing exists; new soccer season's coming up & Today FM no no longer have rights to broadcast Premier League Live from 2 to 6 on a Saturday afternoon so.........


.....is BBC Radio 5 Live available on DAB here in Ireland?

Anyone know, given their soccer commentaries (and boxing, MMA/UFC, rugby union & league etc.) are geoblocked on my laptop will they also be geo blocked on a DAB Radio?

No point me investing in a DAB Radio if BBC Radio 5 Live can't be got here and if games're unavailable in your region; same for Talk Sport.

Depends on how portable you need it to be.
If portability is not needed, high quality BBC R5L is trivially available via Freesat in RoI.
If you're anywhere near the East Coast, the quality of R5L and Talksport is variable but listenable in the evenings on Medium Wave.
