Answer(s)
no,you will have to turn this on manually as the switch is a round dial,so not very pratical for fitting a timer.

Question
Can you confirm if this has LW frequencies?
It mentions LW in the full details at the bottom but not in the top blurb and also one picture has LW and one doesn't. Could you just confirm whether it has this capability please?

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query, I can confirm that although the Alba PR-111L Traditional Portable Radio can be used in India, an adaptor would need to be purchased to do this.
