So, i've narrowed my issues down to having my dashcam installed.

Solution is Ferrite clip on cores. One isnt enough to cure completely yet, just ordered some more to add to the power cable. But adding one improved signal massively.

Does it matter where along the cable these are installed?

Well they recommended as close to the cam as possible.

Many 12v to USB power adaptors are the cause. Poor EMC. If you have one, disconnect it and see if DAB improves.

How can I tell between a good one and a bad one on eBay?!
