Dab with window aerial?

Recommended Posts

Going to transfer a DAB head unit to the Forester. Has anyone tried one of those adaptors that attempt to use the standard aerial for DAB reception? The forester has the standard window printed aerial

Probably going to end up with one of these but was hoping someone had tried an adaptor to use the one on the back window.

In the end the DAB went into a different car, Hyundai Terracan and I bought one of those powered stick on jobbies from eBay and it's !Removed! brilliant. Huge improvement on the aerial that was installed with the DAB when I bought it. I was previously using an upright aerial that was magneted to the roof, never again.
