Question
Does this radio have standby?
I need a radio to use with a timer and radios that feature standby are not suitable. Does this radio have standby or is it straight on and off?

Question
Portable radio
Can you please tell me the names and and model number of any portable radios that pick up Radio Eireann. It is for my husband who likes to hear the sports commentary on there. We had an old that did pick up that frequency, unfortunately it no longer works. Thanks

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.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into this for you I do apologise store have checked the item and it is a substitute with similar specifications that will be supplied. If this item is no longer suitable due to you wanting 'am' radio settings, then if you still have proof of purchase and the originally packaging for the item, also within the 30 day money back guarantee, you will be able to get a full refund.

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?
