    Guys. Is your DAB good at holding a station. I live in the Northwest and then listening to welsh based DAB (heart 80's) it cuts out now and again. National seems ok but still cuts out.

    I gave up with DAB. Use the normal FM.
    We are in a border area for everything!

    I have the same issues listening to heart 80’s up here in Scotland. Most of the time it’s ok but it does cut out now and again.

    I also find that DAB quite often cuts out. We live in Devon and the A303 towards London seems particularly poor. Because LBC has become our popular station (who mentioned Brexit?) what we do now is use the LBC app and Bluetooth to listen to it in the car. Good reception and other than the data it uses,no downside. There is a new station called Scala which plays light classical music and they also have an app and we use Bluetooth to listen to that also.

    I also listen to Heart 80's a lot on DAB.
    No issues at all despite living out in the sticks near the hills.

    My dab drops out a bit around m74 everywhere it’s fine. Only does it on the s3 didn’t have that problem with the a6. Maybe s3 is shorter and not picking up the signals.
