Kmart AM/FM Radio - Review - March 2021
Recently I was given a small $9 AM/FM radio, this is from Kmart but does not have a model number listed.
“This portable AM/FM pocket radio lets you listen to your favourite stations throughout the day. With clear sound playback, you can choose to listen through the built-in speaker or headphone jack.
· Dimensions/Size: 5.6cm (L) x 11.5cm (H) x 2.6cm (D)
· Colour: Black
· Battery information: Requires 2 x AAA 1.5V batteries (not included)
· Supports both AM and FM broadcasts
· Telescopic antenna
· Built-in speaker and earphone jack
· Warranty: 12-months”
From my testing so far it works as well as I would expect from a sub $10 radio. It runs off 2 x AAA batteries. The right hand side panel has the AM/FM switch, ear phone jack and the volume / off control. The front panel has the speaker at the bottom and the tuning knob at the top. This has two scales, the top is for the AM band and the bottom is for the FM band. The tuning knob is a little weird to use and has a small amount of play, the smallest bump will knock it off station. I spent some time last night tuning around both the AM and FM bands.
