Fault in Digital Radio Reception

8:50 in shows the awful, “hunting” “reception” of digital tuner, vs noisy but stable and solid reception of true analog AM radio.

  1. Community Radio Stations: Some small, independent community radio stations may still broadcast in analog format, particularly in remote or rural areas where digital infrastructure is limited.
  2. Shortwave Radio: Shortwave radio broadcasts, which are used for international communication and long-distance broadcasting, often use analog transmission methods. Shortwave enthusiasts and hobbyists may still use analog receivers to tune in to these broadcasts.
  3. Vintage or Retro Electronics Stores: Specialty stores that sell vintage or retro electronics may carry analog radios from past decades. These radios may not be actively receiving broadcasts but can be collectors’ items or curiosities for enthusiasts.
  4. Online Marketplaces: Websites such as eBay or Etsy may have listings for analog radios, including vintage models or new-old-stock items. You may be able to find analog radios from specific manufacturers or models known for their analog capabilities.
  5. Radio Museums or Exhibits: Museums dedicated to the history of radio communication may have analog radios on display, showcasing the technology and development of radio broadcasting over the years.
  6. Antique Shops or Flea Markets: Antique shops or flea markets sometimes have old radios for sale, including analog models from the mid-20th century. These radios may require restoration or repair but can offer a nostalgic connection to the past.
