Currently in stock in Cwmbran and Cardiff (newport road) stores if this is any use to buyers.

Just ordered for home delivery no problem

ordered to collect, Wolverhampton area plenty of choice. thanks heat added

just ordered 2 great find

We bought a similar one from Morrisions, looks more or less identical to this. Runs on 4 C batteries and has a fixed mains cable hidden in its own little compartment next to the batteries. Sounds really good, punchy with decent bass.

Could somebody who's got one please advise if the AM is both MW and LW or just the former? I'm after something cheap to listen to cricket to when out of the house and that's on Radio 4 198m.

[quote=rdwarr]Could somebody who's got one please advise if the AM is both MW and LW or just the former? I'm after something cheap to listen to cricket to when out of the house and that's on Radio 4 198m. You only have to view the photos on site to see that the radio clearly shows FM & MW only, with the bands frequency range. Very few modern radios include the LW band, used by the BBC for sport and the shipping forecast and by mainly foreign radio stations. Best to get a multi band radio with SW, as that will most likely include LW, as they are intended for world radio broadcasts. I have a Disgo wireless Internet TV Radio which obviously receives all Internet and FM broadcasts. It is not what you might expect a large box, it is a small smart design with powerful quality sound AND battery or mains powered ! If by cheap you mean a radio as low in price as this listing, then it will probably be a false economy and give you a headache, as cricket does to me ! My sport is Motor Racing and I can understand if that gives you a headache !

good old fashioned radio not bad!!!!

reading the reviews on the currys site
one of them said no LW

Great, an analogue radio to go with my Gramophone and 8 track tape deck.

reading the reviews on the currys siteone of them said no LW

Are you replying to the original question from rdwarr or my clear comment ? Either way it is superfluous as it does not add to what is obvious ! From simply looking at the photos it can be seen that there is an FM MW selector, with the tuner frequencies showing as FM 87.5 - 108 MHz & MW 525 - 1620 KHz. Finally with the wording Portable 2 Band Radio Receiver, surely that is clear ?

I have essential radio very pleased and listening 1296 XL.

Seems quite clear from the pictures that there is no LW - FM and MW only.

It's FM and MW only.

I've just unpacked this radio at home. Very simple aesthetic - plain, straightforward, easy controls and legible text on the frequency dial. Comes with a mains lead that can be stowed in the battery compartment. Takes 4 x AA batteries rated, according to the instructions, at 15 hours - YMMV!! The sound is fine and clear - loud, not much bass, but middle and high end adequate. Definitely NO Long Wave (LW) function. One thing is there isn't much range on the volume control for low volumes, but low volumes can be achieved with a bit of gentle perseverance.

Overall the until feels sturdy enough to take a few knocks. The FM aerial is straight up and down, with no positioning at lopsided angles - doesn't seem a problem here where reception on FM isn't known to be strong for Radio 2, 3 and 4.

I like the handle

FM..... Its the future !!
As much as I like DAB stations, I've got that fed up with the dismal battery life, that I've returned to analogue radios in places I don't have mains power.... shed, garage and bathroom.
Analogue radios are also simple and rock solid reliable.

These types radio will be the only ones working after Rise Of The Machines

Re Long Wave recommendation....
One of my radios is a 3 band with LW..... Sony ICF-404, typical Sony quality & sound but they go for around 20 quid. Seems to last forever on 3 X AA batts as well.

Seems quite clear from the pictures that there is no LW - FM and MW only.

It appears some people add comments without reading what has already been stated.

It's FM and MW only.

Again, as previously stated !

Just checked these and they are now £1.97 for collection only, no home delivery available, which suits me fine as my workplace is close to a Currys store. Thanks for the find op
