I recently won this radio from a ebay seller for £3.20 with £8.00 postage it had it's power unit missing and the antenna was broken but I had those.
It took sometime identifing the brand and model number but I see it's made in German so far so good.
This is my second win of a radio from lidi my other one is the Tevion DAB 319 with the antenna on the back, it had no display as the back light had burnt out so I put a LED on the inside close to the display and it's fine now.
My main dislike about the Silver Crest KM 2324 is the antenna mounted on the side!!!! OK for DAB but for VHF/FM how do you swivel it.
I hope to reprosistion the Silver Crest antenna to the top.
I am into long distant reception both on VHF/FM and the DAB band and both radios have picked up other multiplexs, both radios have RDS and this is very helpful when receving European stations both on DAB and VHF/FM the PI code would have been more helpful but it's on neither. I also sent for two F to co-ax connectors so I could put a 3 element beam in my loft to the Tevion and later I will do the same mod to the silver crest. Michael
