Yeah, it's a pretty poor signal isn't it! Mind you, Switch doesn't get out very well on FM either, quite a low block they are on.. I'm assuming the DAB is broadcast from the same site, haven't really looked into it. I'm a couple of miles at most up the road and the signal is quite poor.

I don't know if it was still broadcasting on Monday morning but I had nothing by mine, I'm not in Wolverhampton but signals don't usually do too badly towards here.
I think I remember seeing a coverage map but don't remember how far it get out.
If you think I care, you're too far gone.
