I use a personal radio when I work as a Gardener 6-9 hours a day, 5 days a week. I've used various personal & DAB radios for 13 years now & this Roberts sports radio is the best by far. The only negative is that I could do with the maximum volume setting being higher due to the noise of the lawnmower!! I also bought a Pure pocket DAB 1500 leather case to put the radio in & clip it to my belt. Money well spent.
