    Default Bee sting ariel

    Will a bee sting make any difference to the VX DAB factory fit CD sommat or other or will recetion be the same?

    Whats the difference and benefit of getting the brass one?

    bee sting aerials are shorter and therefore produce a weaker pick up in relation to reception

    if you live in a high transmission area it wont be a problem

    if you live in the sticks like me - there about as much use as a chocolate fireguard

    I was alway led to believe the ariels are separate on a dab radio to the normal one, so can't see a problem??
