Hope this helps someone.........

Pure Intempo DAB radio.

I've had one of these radios from when they first came out.

I was never really happy with the sensitivity and careful placement has always been necessary.

So I've been meaning to knock up an areial. Today I unscrewed the attached aerial and was surprised to find it is an F connector.

Adjacent to the radio was a spare feed from a Sky quad LNB so I popped onto the aerial socket on the back of the radio and 100% signal on all channels.

Stray pickup definatly but who really cares?

5 bloody minutes ........... I should have looked years ago.

A few of them use F connectors, a feed of a standard TV aerial will often do the trick also.
