    I would say depends on how old the radio is? & system they use
    Is it DAB & DAB+
    Im sure Germany they use DAB+ now
    The UK in last months has switched on DAB+ transmitters
    My in car radio has both as its sold all over Europe

    No they do not have it, ( where I live anyway ) you have to get digi radio through TV, if you have access to the net then you can get most of the uk channels
    using a number of net radio streams. You cannot get Radio 5 etc on the net when there is a major event ( ie: EPL ) transmitting.

    Regards

    Maurice -could u not use a VPN to access local radio service etc?
    A internet radio is the best way forward as it opens up 1000's of stations

    I have a Roberts one & which is the dogs danglers

    I do not know if the net transmit "The Sport" in the UK!!!
    I did try last time I was in the UK but due to contractual reasons they did not.
    All other times 99% work fine without a VPN with my net.

    DAB radio is a turkey, its a ragbag of problems, ana-logue is far superior due to its simplicity, if you like non stop pressing unresponsive buttons DAB might be appealing.
