bad reception

published

I live in the Wollongong area.....
looks great, but.............
also found the same problem, bad reception,
tunes in to a station, if you like country music,
rock station tunes in, then slowly disappears,
the bluetooth is great, to listen to my own personal music
I also wish I could take it back,
might have to give it to some..........

Impressive radio!

published

Great looking radio and the sound quality is excellent. Live in Brisbane so had no problems picking all the channels. The Bluetooth works well when I want to stream from my iPhone. This radio retails for about $200 at Good Guys and Office works but I managed to get a refurbished one on eBay for $100 + $20 (Postage). Did not have any issues with the dim LCD display as mentioned in one of the reviews - seems ok to me. The label on the buttons glow in a subtle orange when in standby mode which looks awesome in the dark. I initially intended to buy the Bush TR82 Retro Style Digital Radio, but decided to get this one because it had better speakers and Bluetooth which turned out to be a good choice.

Great Retro look and sounds great as well

published

This is the best looking retro Digital radio around and has a veneered timber case, sounds great as well. Another nice feature is when it is in standby mode all the buttons glow at a reduced level this looks magic at night, I believe this model has been deleted now so I suggest if you love the look of this retro DAB radio that you find one before they have all gone.

Sounds beautiful- that is all!

Works well, sounds great

The radio worked exactly as expected straight out of the box. I'm in an area designated for good reception and it works well and picks up all stations with the telescopic aerial. Good sound and the bluetooth works nicely when streaming from my laptop. Rotary actuator for tuning and setting menu items is quite nice.

Wish I could take it back

All good except poor reception, not as good as the Radio it was to replace. Suggestions that I could get an external antenna are falling on deaf ears! Why do I need to do that after paying such a premium price? Disappointed! After all, a radio that has poor reception is like a car with a defective engine.
All good except . . .
Poor reception!

Thanks! I was thinking something like that but you've confirmed it and added detail. The tx maps show signal pouring out the side over to Yarra Glen too

Questions & Answers

Alexis

Alexisasked

Several months ago I moved from Melbourne to regional Victoria (approximately 4 hours north close to the Murray River) and couldn't understand why neither of my Bush DAB+ Radios no longer worked. Recently I was devastated when I discovered that digital radio isn't available in my area according to the Australian Digital Network website?!!! As it's also near impossible to pick up the closest FM stations I'm going insane without it... I desperately need help/advice from someone who has technical knowledge about this issue that could recommend what to do and help save my sanity.... PLEASE!

Have a look here: put in the postcode and it will tell you what the reception is like

If you are out of luck, you might have to go the way of the internet for radio. You can get radios that work on wi-fi and you can store your favourite station. Keep up with the radio listening. This one is apparently good and portable, but you need half decent internet. Good luck!

Or there are "long range" radios available such as this:

Why is the reception so poor? The thing costs so much but is virtually useless. My somewhat less expensive Sony works fine in my location. Vert disappointed!
