Q. What is the length of the aerial on the back of the radio?
A. Hi CB, thank you for your question. Approximately 1m of wire is supplied for the aerial connection.

01 December 2015 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 70-4037
Q. Is there a way of adjusting the volume? I cannot see any means to do that. I have a kit here but there seems to be no volume control on the PCB. Thanks
A. Hi Art, thank you for your question. The volume is adjusted by two push buttons up and down which are located on the front panel the second and third push buttons down.


Great Radio

Great sound, a little fiddly to put together (the voltage regular and transistor are identical so read the numbers on the components!) but worked first time, no debugging and a very satisfying project.

Great value, sounds great, worked first time

Very high quality PCB with solder mask helps radio work first time. Quality parts and everything is supplied. With supplied wire antenna mine receives 18 Glasgow FM stations with ease. Some hints & tips to consider (numbers refer to construction step) (1) printing assembly instructions onto A3 paper makes reading easier (6) ensure dot on array resistor matches dot on pcb (9) if push button pins enter the pcb easily you have oriented it correctly. Push part down firmly to pcb then solder (14) I fitted speaker then used two wire offcuts to solder to pcb - don't forget to add spring washers under every nut (16) Adding the preassembled FM Tuner to the pcb can be a challenge. Here's how I did it. I added some solder to each leg and pin on the FM Tuner unit and then let it cool. Then I added solder to the pads on the pcb where the Tuner goes. Making sure the Tuner is oriented correctly I then generously soldered each corner leg to pcb while pushing Tuner down. Then when you carefully heat the pre-soldered pins, solder will flow down to the pcb forming good electrical connections. Good luck and happy listening.
