Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roberts Gemini 45 DAB FM RDS Digital Radio - Black (Electronics)
I bought this radio after reading the positive reviews above and was thoroughly disappointed.
The radio is *very* sensitive to movement, unlike other digital radios I have bought and has trouble keeping a strong enough signal. This is not a problem with reception in my area because other digital radios in the same house work fine.
Another problem is, the radio picks up lots of stations which in then tells you aren't available because the signal is too weak. You tune in with auto-tune, and it tells you "station not available" - this is very frustrating, if the signal isn't strong enough, it would be better to ignore that station completely. I tried doing a "deep-scan" tune but this didn't help at all.
The radio seems well constructed and the sound is pretty good for a small radio, but the reception is very disappointing in my experience.
