I have pictures erm
There was a certain amount of prevarication!!
Measure three times, cut once
Is there a proper dab aerial that will fit in your existing aerial holes?
Probably not or that is what I would have done.
My expensive ish adaptor (to turn normal aerial into dab aerial) is no better than a cheap windscreen mounted dab aerial
I’m going to try the adapter and see if it does the trick. If not, I’ll flog it and just get a windscreen one. It would be just too perfect if there was a DAB one that was exactly like my FM aerial and fitted in the same holes..... so I’m thinking probably there isn’t!
I put my dab aerial on the cab roof you could do that and keep the fm one on the front
My adaptor is a kinetic DAA 7002.
It was from dab on wheels
OK thinking about getting @scrooge95's radio, I assume I'll need a spindle to DIN kit to fit the Retro Radio into my slot. Can anyone who has a Retro Radio confirm I'm on the right lines, please?
Here's my radio..
Yes, you need the ‘conversion’ kit.
The shape of the retrosound radio unit is about half the width of a normal DIN sized stereo, so the space has to filled out on either side with metal bits that attach and grip the DIN slot. If that makes sense.
Thanks I'll get on ordered and save my pennies for your old unit
I've got a radio cassette.
It has long wave and I can listen to the cricket .

It was only ‘ace’ last Sunday. It was crap the rest of the time.
Right, get to techenders with it as soon as possible!
(I’ve got a LW portable radio too, but it eats batteries for fun.... it will be on the passenger seat for my journey though!)
And bugger off @CollyP , cricket is ace all the time, it was just especially good last Sunday
Big thanks to @paneuropaul for the fact I've been listening to the cricket on Radio 5 Sports Extra all afternoon!
The splitter works perfectly at converting the normal aerial to work with the DAB
Yep, surprisingly good, I'm hopeful that I can cobble something together for my car now.
My DIN kit arrived Friday, so I'm set to exchange beer tokens for a non DAB Retro Radio
