I've got factory fitted DAB in my current car so the signal is picked up by the aerial on the rear windscreen.

In my previous car where I had an after market DAB I used to use a magnetic aerial that I got from dabonwheels. This worked exceptionally well when mounted on my boot lid but was a bit unsightly. I therefore usually just stuck it upside down in the boot and his worked pretty well most of the time.

My honest opinion is that if you want consistently good DAB reception you need an external aerial.
