What is DAB+ DAB+ was developed in Europe by a consortium of broadcasters and manufacturers. DAB+ uses digital compression techniques to transform the source material, i.e. music and speech, into better quality audio. Interference Free Reception Analogue systems suffer from an effect called “multipath distortion”. This is because waves do not behave in an orderly fashion, but bounce and reflect off buildings etc. DAB+ sees this as an advantage and uses the directed and reflected signals to reinforce the end result, allowing for better service more of the time. No Need to Re‐tune A single DAB+ frequency can be used to cover the whole of the Australia, so solving many problems experienced with the earlier analogue system. DAB+ scans automatically and tunes‐in all of the available stations in your area. Scrolling Text Broadcasters can transmit text to your radio. This way you can read the name of the DJ, artist, song title or any other information they choose. DAB+ Coverage Check your local coverage at www.digitalradioplus.com.au, or alternatively text 0409‐DRPLUS to receive an SMS confirming whether you reside in a DAB+ broadcast area. 6
