Anyone here changed their rooftop aerial for a DAB one?
Hey all, got set up with a Dension DAB adaptor to hook up to the stereo along with an indoor/windscreen mounted amplified DAB aerial, unfortunately, as I kinda knew from past experience, the signal drops in an out unless you place it in a completely gash-looking position (middle of windscreen with wires protruding out!)
Shame, as I love seeing the DAB info on the driver DIS as it scrolls across with the DAB station, as well as the track that is playing...Great for Absolute 80s & 90s... Should I get my coat??
Anyhow! Can't be dealing with it dropping signal ALL the time so really an outside aerial is the only option, I don't want a tacky stick-on outside one where the wire is visible as they look awful, so the solution is to get something like this...
Kinetic DRA-6001 DAB/DABplus/FM/SW/MW/LW Car Radio Aerial Antenna
Which will also (supposedly) improve the FM signal as well if that part is connected up also.
I did notice the A3 doesn't actually have a visible aerial on the roof, even though the previous A3 I had, did have a Sharkfin type one on there.
Has anyone ever had an aftermarket aerial fitted? Is it a massive job? Would have thought a car audio shop could do something like that in a couple of hours if that?
