Bizarre lying newspaper piece

There is a 'I couldn't live without...' section in the Indy today. One of the bits is:

Digital Radio
Ross Morrison
British Paralympics rugby champion
Since the Paralympics, I've signed for the Sarasota Lightning rugby club in Florida. It means being away from England for six months in a year. I wouldn't be able to survive without my digital radio. I bought it at the airport on a last-minute impulse and it's one of my best-ever buys. It has become my link to home. The World Service makes me feel like I'm still in contact.

By this, there is a picture of a Pure DAB radio.

Now, this is obviously nonsense, since a DAB radio wouldn't work in Florida. Therefore
a) charitably, he bought a shortwave radio with a digital display (this is why DAB radios are branded as DAB), or just conceivably an American satellite radio.
b) most likely, it is just completely made up

Ho hum.
