Re: Independence Day

The BBC news website has an item headed: "Brexit. A really simple guide".

The actual post however is yards long .. says it all I think! Everyone wants something different to emerge from all the mess. May the best person/faction/political grouping of aggressive agitators win ..

Re: Independence Day

So, it's happened, the totally inevitable defeat on the Brexit deal and I have lost understanding of Theresa May. It was obvious what would happen, so why has she been so dogged and unmoving about her "deal" and what was she hoping to achieve? I still cannot predict how this will turn out ...

Re: Digital radios

On my DAB radio just heard the news of Theresa May's massive defeat on the Brexit deal - loud and clear in all senses! No problems here with reception. I had greater problems previously with analogue radio reception, with the station often going off-tune and needing adjustment. Even so, I still pref...

Re: Digital radios

This is clearly an area which you do know well! Very interesting. I noticed this morning that my smaller DAB radio actually quotes the bit-rate - I will check that again later against your figures. Of the two DAB radios I bought last year, the smaller one has quite a tinny sound, irritating for good...

Re: Digital radios

If DAB radio is so wonderful, why are there numerous parts of the country where it doesn't work well or it can't be obtained at all? And why are analogue radios still on sale?

Re: Digital radios

Not at all my field, any of this, but interesting and informative. Thanks! I remain to some extent old-fashioned, in that I never did like the fiddliness of clock radios and I am continuing my search for a straightforward analogue radio with knobs, no DAB and NO push-buttons. Roberts do a "Clas...

Re: Pier

It seems understandable that the pier at times needs repairs - but two months seems excessive and why the lack of proper information? Why not just be straight and release details of what work is in progress? Nothing will alter the empty, basic look of the whole structure - a large wooden Boy Scout h...

Re: Digital radios

I understood some of that! I hadn't thought about the bit-rate (sort of download rate? Is that the right understanding of it?), but it makes sense from the digital point of view. The problem is largely my cheap radios, for my poor hearing the sound is sharper and clearer but not at all mellow and na...

Re: Digital radios

This is an old thread and I didn't think I would end up backtracking somewhat on my original comments re: digital radios .. there you go. The medium-size Logik radio which I bought for the kitchen remains a good device for background music when I am busying around, although the sound is indeed more ...
