Yes, on all bands, but I wouldn't know how to attempt your no doubt fine suggestion. I have noticed that the station will come back instantly if I turn off the climate control. Turning it back on a moment later doesn't affect the reception, but it will happen again - the losing of signal, I mean - sooner or later. Any ideas what might be causing this? Thanks again, Michael
