Hi FM-ophiles, advice required please. I’ve dusted off my NAT02, installed an external aerial and am generally pleased with the results - but for R3. I can pick up R3, R4, BBC London etc with stereo and signal lights bright green and without visible drift. Sound is clean and crisp apart from R3 where spoken sounds fine but music is relayed via a Dalek. An echo-y, tinny edge to the sound. Aerial is rudimentary (FM dipole from ATV) and installed on a high wall which faces south-east-ish towards Wrotham (the local transmitter for me in south east London). No problem with a simple internal aerial but that may be because the signal isn’t so good - counterintuitively. Certainly the range of stations isn’t as good.
Do I really need a better aerial or are there other tricks of the trade (aerial placement, cable routing etc)?
That’s all folks. Thanks!
