Why are we doing this?

We want to create a map, indicating which stations are available at which places indoor or outdoor. This map can help radio broadcasters to improve their services. It can also help radio listeners to make decisions about where to place a radio or which antenna to be used. The data will not contain any personal information before processed further or shared with other parties.

  1. Dirk Handzik

    Great board. Simple to install. You need to amplify the direct output sound. The firmware is included, so you don’t have to hunt the rare firmware files.

  2. MARKUS QUABACH (verified owner)

    This Pi-Hat is very easy to assemble. I can receive 21 stations crystal clear with a small outdoor antenna. The software could be a bit more comfortable. It’s just a simple command line program. A Raspberry Pi Zero or a Pi2 are strong enough for this DAB+ Hat. For Raspberry Pi fans I give a clear buying recommendation!
