Default earphone as antena for radio

I notice the metal part in the standard earphone the comes with it. I think it is made to pick up better signals for the radio? I use my sony earphone and the radio pick up is not that good

Yes, the headphones you plug into the T10 serves as the antenna as well since there is no internal AM/FM antenna.

maybe, maybe not. anyway i dont hear any difference when using my old cheap headphones (EUR1.59 earplugs from KAUFLAND, the cheapest model in http://www.skymaster.de/products/aud...1102223085&_lw= )

Change the sensitivity to High and go into manual mode. In auto preset mode the T10 found only 6 to 10 stations (with RDS enabled), in manual mode i found 52 stations (incl duplicates) 30+ of which different ones in very good - acceptable quality. So i tried to save the 30+ but you can save only up to 30 stations with the T10. So i selected exactly 30 different stations from the 30+ different stations.

Moreover, i created a TXT-file with notepad.exe, listed all 52 frecuencies in it (52 short lines, so that the lines would not wordwrap!), and transferred the file to the T10, for reference.

Even though RDS is enabled, many little remote stations dont air the RDS signal, so i need to look up my TXT in order to know what station i am currently listening to.

Manual mode, and High Sensitivity. Good luck!
