Frequently asked questions

Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) is a specification to broadcast high quality digital audio and data services for portable and fixed location receivers. It has been rolled out in over 40 countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Italy.

DAB+ is the latest generation of DAB and offers the ability to transmit more digital audio streams by using an encoder with greater efficiency.

Digital Switch Over (DSO) is when a region decides to move their broadcast radio infrastructure to digital only, usually switching off FM and AM transmission. This allows the region to enjoy the benefits of DAB and lower the cost by not having to support multiple broadcast infrastructures. Norway underwent DSO in 2017 and Switzerland is planning to do so in 2024.
