    DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) is a the European successor of FM radio and it can broadcast besides audio services also other services such as traffic information. In this paper the probability of non-recognized errors in the system is derived for a 8 kbit/s data subchannel using protection level EEP3-A. This is important as data services rely on error-free transmission. It has been shown that in a live DAB network, this probability is very low. For a realistic user scenario, a user will encounter on average a non-recognized packet each 100000 year.
