DAB reception improved in the area?

I purchased a Pure DAB/FM radio-alarm clock many years ago. The old radio alarm clock was getting annoying after many years of good service because it was manually tuned.
So some 6 years ago (I think) I bought the Pure clock radio for £25. It turned out to be a bargain because of all the automated features, including keeping track of the yearly time changes. However I struggled to get good DAB reception, so after a few years I gave up bothering and stuck to FM radio.

That changed recently when I decided to try DAB again and was surprised to hear perfect glitch free audio. Plus it has been consistently perfect ever since, this is particularly useful for listening to Radio 4 Extra which is a digital only channel. So finally my little £25 radio has become a real bargain.
