    It's a pity it does not tune 47 - 88 MHz for DRM+, to allow conversion of FM to DRM+. The other analog radios made by Avion tune the FM sound from ITU regions 1 & 3 Band 3 TV channels in addition to the other bands.

    Will this radio produce stereo sound from a stereo DRM signal?

  14. Estou quase sintonizando uma estação DRM a 17790khz aqui no Brazil em Sao Paulo mas com o radio Morphi Richards Model.027024. Porque com o Radio Avion AV-DR 1401 negativo não funciona por aqui em SP/SP. O Morphi Richards é sem dúvida muito melhor. Estou vendendo o meu Radio Avion AV-DR 1401 semi novo se alguem tiver interesse. QSL do Brasil
