I figured that it's still a DAB radio. What's specific about it, just the connector?
The latter you linked to is only for the Pure Highway...
Not sure but it just says only for Digital Highway on that page. There is another one for general DAB units.
For those located where its hard to find suitable aerials locally, try the DIY approach...
I'm using a magimount taxi aerial as per the above post. Works pretty well - better than my windscreen mount job. You should be able to get a taxi aerial with a whip that can be cut down in most parts of the planet.
The main issue will be fitting an SMB connector to the end of the cable...
guys, search FM + DAB Diplexer
if you can find one, even if it has F connectors... i might
be able to reverse engineer it
actually a Triplexer should be easier
External (M/H) TV + FM + DAB Triplexer (cw 4 quality F conns)
just terminate the UHF in... with 75ohm terminator
someone needs to try this...
"Did you test it in carwings??"
Sun, Come shine my way
May healing waters bury all my pain
Wind, Carry me home
The fabric of reality is tearing apart
The piece of me that died
Will return To live again
If you need some $$ to go towards picking one up to rip apart Mitch, fire me off a PM, I'm happy to throw some your way for one or two to pull to pieces.
I haven't got one of the DAB+ radio's yet, but I'm looking at grabbing one before too long, they are finally starting up more DAB+ channels in Perth, so there is actually some choice, and having it fall back to FM and AM is exactly what I'm looking for. Although, I do have a standard single aerial, which I was hoping to use for DAB+ reception anyway, so I don't think I need the duplexer / triplexer, however I'm happy to throw some money at a worthy hacking cause!!
One question, are the operating frequencies for DAB and DAB+ the same?
Great stuff. About time!
I've been using the vision tripplexer since May with good results. No noticable attenuation of either FM or DAB. DAB Aerial is now a taxi magi-mount cut for 1/4wave on DAB. FM aerial is what came on the van (poor!)

Its rather crude, but it works. Unfortunately, its a part of my carpc so I cant donate it for reverse engineering! A 'DC Injector' is required to replace the more usual mains powered masthead PSU. I just feed 5V from the USB to the tripplexer, via the inline DC injector.
I had wanted to hide it all internally in the case, but this would mean connecting the tripplexer to sockets mounted on the case, and thus more interconnections/losses. It would also make for a huge box! I have made no attempts at impedance matching, nor have I terminated the UHF input.
