Random Radio


Came across this review:

Mostly poor reviews for this radio. I’ve not tried it but the big gripe is a poor AM tuner and the expectation that the build quality would be better like Philips used to be.

Others thought it would have a digital radio as in DAB+ but were misled by the specs.


Happy World Radio Day :radio:


I wonder how bad would the cochannel if they got rid of the downtilt etc. Given on fm radio they are not too worried on cochannel interference. DAB would not have the same reach of fm radio given where it is on the spectrum.


And I’m guessing downtilt is the reason why we haven’t heard any reports of DAB being received at long distance via sporadic Es or aircraft scatter (as the signal can’t then get up into the atmosphere?).
