DAB Radio - Aerial Improvement


Standard Member

I've got A Chronos 2 bedside radio. We're fairly rural and the signal strength. I was wondering if it's possible to extend the existing aerial or connect it to an external one?

I've tried the technical advice people at Pure who were a waste of time - they reckon there is nothing that can be done because the aerial wire is directly attached and there is no facility for connecting an external one.

I just wondered if anyone had an suggestions? I don't mind getting the screwdiver and soldering iron out if necessary.



PS In a better reception area I'd recommend the Chronos. It's a nice little radio and the big plus is that it has an external transformer. Originally I had a Roberts which had an internal transformer which woke us up in the middle of the night!

I know this is an old thread.
I have a very flimsy DAB Highway aerial. It doesn't pick anything up. Wondering wether I could extend the reception by extending the aerial wire?
