 Wohnort's symbol for DAB+  Wohnort's symbol for Band III DAB+ tests have taken place on an experimental ensemble in Brighton. The BBC has announced that it will conduct tests of DAB+ during 2014. Ofcom has announced that broadcasters on a forthcoming second national commercial multiplex will be free to use DAB+ if they wish, subject to a maximum of 30% of the ensemble's capacity. Generally, however, broadcasting in the UK still uses "original-flavour" DAB transmitted in Band III. A "tick mark" is to be launched this year as a marketing tool to signify receivers that meet a certain minimum specification. DAB+ capability is expected to be one of the requirements for the tick mark. Wohnort recommends, now more than ever, that you should consider buying a receiver that is DAB+ capable even if you never plan to take it out of the country with you. Such a receiver should also be more future-proof than one which only receives DAB.

Tuning to Block 10B
The frequency allocated to Derbyshire lies outside the range of the seven blocks used during the initial UK DAB roll-out. Some older radios may not include Block 10B in their automatic scans. In this case, select the option "Full Scan" in the receiver's menus. This may also be called a "Rest of the World" scan, as opposed to a "UK" scan.
