Hi,
Hey I travel long distance to work and am fedup of hearing the FM channels on my radio.I am looking forward to hearing some American channels, as I think this may also increase my vocabularly.Any idea what I should ask my shopkeeper for so that my radio can get these channels too along with the AM/FM stuff.
Regards,
Kirti

Some kind of short-wave radio might make sense. I'd google for information rather than rely on this forum.

You might wanna try connecting your new radio�s antena to your anti-lightening circuits earth lead (that big copper (?) wire that goes connected to a long metal pipe deep into the groud � well, thats the shortest distance to America!
Well, I don't know if you would get any American channels in India, but there's a more than decent service from BBC, which is quite good, informative and would help with some excellent �propah� British English. (and accurate and impartial version of news as well )
HTH!

You are typical urban youth
From Bush to Philips to Murphy all make 3 band radios.

Hi Kittu,
Buy this Philips Radio - I got this in India - and use it to listen to Shortwave radio in the US. It never needs a battery - so it's pretty cool!
(Shortwave bands never made it to commercial radios in homes and cars here in the US - I wonder why :roll: )
