Lowe HF225

Post by Orinoco »

Hello

Acquired a Lowe hf225 some time ago. Didn't have the time to try it out.

Problem. I attached the telescopic antenna which came with it. Switched on.

Tuned to 198khz (BBC Radio 4) . Nothing
Tuned to 1584khz (Local radio- got a signal- not brilliant
Tuned to Shannon volmet- nothing.

Maybe I am having a 'senior moment' - am I missing something? Thanks

I'm no expert on these excellent receivers, but is there a selector switch for the antenna?
