DAB Radio in Denmark

Denmark has one of the highest numbers of DAB users per capita in the world, with 46% of the population having access to digital radio. Digital radio is driving growth in the radio industry, 28% of radio listening is digital (Source: Q1 2018 DR/Gallup). Denmark has adopted the DAB+ standard for all DAB broadcasts.
There are two DAB+ multiplexes broadcast nationally in Denmark, DK DAB1 (12C) & DAB2 OE (11C)/N (13B)/S (8B) and MUX3 which is a regional multiplex).
All information is based on reception in Copenhagen and the Capital Region (Region Hovedstaden), services may vary in other areas of the country.

DAB+ broadcasts in VHF Band III (174-235MHz), a higher frequency than both AM and FM resulting in shorter wavelengths. This spectrum efficient technology allows broadcasters to offer their listeners new digital-only stations using less spectrum than analogue and DAB radio.

DAB+ uses a robust modulation which is designed for radio reception in mobile environments such as vehicles. DAB+ also provides new features such as scrolling text, EPG, slideshow and in some receivers, animation.

Receivers must be capable of decoding at least one audio sub-channel.
A receiver must be able to decode a DAB audio service contained in a sub-channel of a size up to and including 280 Capacity Units (e.g. 256 kbps@UEP1).
DAB audio services are defined in ETSI EN 300 401.

A receiver must be able to decode a DAB+ audio service contained in a sub-channel of a size up to and including 144 Capacity Units (e.g. 96 kbps@EEP1A).
