@endure any chance you could post a pic of your setup please?Rocking horse droppings. Keep checking e-bay once a week and you might find one pop-up for sale every few years. Good luck with that. Plenty of Yaesu FRG-7s around though, which was it's main competitor. Technology has moved on though. If you haven't got much room for an antenna in the garden maybe try a setup like Endure's, small USB SDR radio, DIY wire picture frame antenna and a simple antenna tuner. If you just want to capture the thrill of analogue radio keep experimenting. Cheap and satisfying when it works.
