Re: Tecsun 380 - Longwave stopped working


I think I've now broken both my MW/LW and FM buttons (they press but don't do anything).  Now the only way I can get into FM is by resetting the batteries (as the default is FM).  Shortwave still works.

The LW range can be switched on and off.

Switch off the radio and hold down the MW/LW button.

EIther "LW ON" or "LW OFF" will appear. If it's "LW OFF" let the button go and then hold it down again until it changes. :^)

You can also adjust the FM coverage the same way (if you're an international jetsetter) with the [FM SET] button.
