    Well, I've managed to fix a small, portable radio that was in a poor shape...

    Yes, it's taken the best part of a week to fix (due to soldering iron issues), however, it's done now! And the said radio is now back to how it was, picking up very strong signals only (as opposed to nothing at all).

    The radio stations it can pick up:
    Upstairs:
    Radio 1-4, Classic FM, BBC Northampton, Heart. Connect FM is a bit hit and miss, depending on where the radio is located.
    Downstairs:
    Radio 1-4. Anything else hit and miss, including Heart.

    It must be noted that this is quite poor - Connect FM is transmitted from a mast that is two villages away!

    Unfortunately, the signal received above is typical of the cheapo radios (either personal or with a speaker) that have just a "scan/receive" system, whereby one button scans for the next station that it can find, and the other resets the radio back to the first station it can pick up, at the bottom of the band (usually Radio 2 @ 90.1MHz).

    This radio is fixed - now, it goes on eBay!

    If it was before 11pm, then yes. Otherwise, I haven't seen it.

    I think that the 100 post stats could be moved to the 2nd post, but the rest of the features that I have put in the OP are fine for the moment :yep:

    Yep that makes sense, have the OP as the rules, and #2 post as the competitions. This was the post I was talking about.
