Well, how do these sound ? No bass on old Am Radios so I'm curious as to how these sound?
Dont think I would buy one unless AM shuts down completely.
Speaking of that I read in the news the chinese bought up all our old Radio frequencies in the Pacific areas...
Old ABC was one of them ... 11 in total I think by memory. Don't quote me on it as I read everything and it becomes a blurry in the memory bank.
Anyway here is the FM convertor to connect old valve radios to FM

I prefer using a low power AM transmitter. You can plug any audio source into that and broadcast around the house to any AM receivers.

RA seems to have gone almost completely away from the old forms of terrestrial transmitters FM comes off satellites to various points in the Pacific, or via Internet & some conventional transmission is going out Via Radio NZ.
