Indeed, after consulting a technical service of Alfa Romeo my dealer comes now to the conclusion that he should change the antenna base. Will be done on February 19, I cross fingers that everything will be fine after this intervention.

I know a lot of **** about radio gained from a misspent youth that involved CB radio on FM and AM for anyone who knows the difference? Your reception depends a lot on the available ground plane. On the guilietta the Ariel is positioned to the back of the car so because the amount of metal in front of the aerial makes the radio more receptive to signals infront of you. Older cars used to have aerials at the front of the car so the signals behind you prevailed. I don't have a DAB radio but it involves much lower signal strengths that may not be quite so susceptible to your direction of travel.
