GE Superadio III Product Reviews

X 2

Just got me to thinking. How would you connect that to the speaker system to use the tuner in the Superedio ? Maybe a new project in the future. Got to admit in weak reception areas the factory unit worthless.

I jus' purchased two 48" whips from an amateur outlet for $4/ea. I'll jam 'em in the mesh of the swivel. I actually expect the improved signal capture to drown-out converter noise. We'll see. I'll update.

I believe the reason FR uses the inside, tape antenna is because the original Mercedes antenna can't be mounted on the reconfigured RV roof. They think this is a cool solution, except that it doesn't work.

That's what I did. Turn the booster on and pull in those FM stations.

All good ideas however we're trying to capture AM stations. I don't "rap" so I don't listen to much FM. I have Sirius in the truck and the XLR, but I don't pay subscriptions. I'm the guy that DX's distant AM stations. I've done that since I was a kid rather than do homework. I know I'm not the only one. I had a 50 foot line & coil when I was younger...loved pulling in AM skip. I'm also doing shortwave. Interesting to listen to English broadcasts from ASIA to get a different perspective on what US media wants us to believe. What better to do in winter than sit outside on 80 degree overnites in Florida Keys catching distant shortwave?

Just get XM/Sirius radio and be done. Also plenty of APPs for your phone. Both can be plugged into the stereo with a 3.5 patch cord.
All the stereo stuff installed in RV's is just plain ole junk. Speakers are horrible, stereos don't last. Doesn't matter what you pay for the RV you still get junk most of the time. A few MFGs are putting in quality electronics but they are rare. Biggest issue with the Jensen junk is the lack of output/inputs for HDMI.

I have always wondered how much those Radio Services cost ???
And do I want to pay for something for 365 days for something that would only get used once in a while ???
I guess the is a easy way out for FR !!!
