Dreadful signal
« on: November 09, 2013, 08:30:57 AM »
Hello all.

I am looking for advice, as I have moved from an area where the 5 Live signal was crystal clear to an area where it is pretty poor, and almost non-existent if it rains.

I am constantly flipping between the 909, 693 and 990 frequencies, and usually have to give up until I can get to a computer.

Is there a way to boost the am signal when I'm at home, as I really don't want to have the computer on all the time, just to listen to the radio?

Thank you for any forthcoming help..   :)

Hi Stan and welcome to the forum.

Have you tried a DAB radio. They are really very good and your`ll be surprised at the audio quality.

I live in Essex and Im able to listen to lots of London stations which on normal FM im not able to.

Why not take a look in your local store for a DAB radio,  Im sure your`ll find what your looking for. Good luck...

Hello mel, and thanks for your reply.
I already own a digital radio, but the signal where I am is even worse than trying to listen to medium wave! Since moving, just over a year ago, I haven't been able to enjoy DAB...and I'm really missing it!
So I was hoping there might be a booster device of some sort than can be plugged into a regular radio.
