Hi, going to France tomorrow and had intended on getting an AM radio to follow the cricket whilst we're over there, however, I have doubts if it will get the signal. My only reasoning that suggests it will is because my amp sometimes picks up Japanese radio

Anyone know for sure if it will work over there?

Cheers

Can you not just go on the BBC website/other website?

You should get Radio 4 LW I would imagine...

If not, you'll at least get BBC World Service, which also has the cricket commentary I believe.

Radio works by broadcasting signals to a certain area


use the internet like the rest of the world


you can actually listen to distant short/medium wave radio transmissions from well over the horizon because they bounce off the ionosphere, this is effect is much more prominent at night

use the web, you can probably get it off the bbc website or skysports

though the BBC are often bastards that don't let foreign IP addresses access the streaming content because we don't pay for TV liscences

the only problem you will have is you can not view the iplayer i know because i tried to watch glasto highlights on it and it wouldn't let me because i live in ireland although i get their channels, you will get the radio channels alright

but he'll still be able to keep track of the scores unless you can't access any of the sports news pages.

We're going to a Villa where there won't be any computers available, even if there is an internet connection. So, unfortunately, that's not an option :S

Just take it anyway and try the world service.

As I said, you'll probably be able to get Radio 4 LW in France (198 KHz).

I think they also have Test Match Special on World Service (not a clue what freq. that is though)...

Although, thinking about it, it might be Radio 4 that joins World Service for the shipping forecast...

Yes... A radio is a radio is a radio, no matter where in the world you are.

Everywhere uses radio waves for its radio broadcasts, not just the UK

Not sure what frequency World Service is on, but I assume its on Long Wave considering everywhere in the world gets it.

Ok, cheers
