You wanna boast up the radio signal?? There are ant. boasters around, But if your far away from a radio station your radio cant make that weak signal any higher in amplitude. All you would be amplifying is noise or static. Sorry

Why will my radio new 3120 not pick up dab stations at all really tune and all I get is radio 2 have tried for a week to get magic fm thank you

If you have replaced a normal car radio with a DAB then your existing aerial is not suitable due to the required frequency range. You need a DAB aerial for cars. There are many types available, internal or external. Don't bother with converters as this will only give a marginal boost to the fm aerial.

What is the purpose of a graphic equalizer?

A graphic equalizer is designed to allow the user to tailor the music to his or her personal hearing. Obviously not everyone hears frequencies the same. As you get older or are exposed to loud noises you lose sensitivity to certain frequencies. To compensate for that you can boost or cut the fequencies being played through your system. Originally the graphic equalizer was designed to make corrections to bad recordings and deficiencies in the recording medium of the time. Now they are used more to compensate for hearing deficiencies. To understand how an equalizer works you need to understand that ideally the normal person can hear about 20 khz of audio when they are young and have perfect hearing. Probably more realistically they can hear 20 hz to 15 khz. Enter the equalizer. All sounds are heard differently according to the intensity of the frequency. If your hearing is bad, say down 10db at 10khz, with an equalizer you could boost 10khz by 10db and make up for it. An equalizer contains filters which breaks the audio spectrum into bands. Could be 3, 6, 10, 15, 20 or more. The more bands the more the equalizer costs but the more corrective power you have. We have equalizers with 64 bands. . The numbers on the sliders are the frequencies your equalizer can boost or cut. Keep in mind that they are the center frequency and will effect frequencies on either side for about a 10db range. So you can cut/boost frequencies at 50hz (very low), 200hz (low but still bass), 800hz (low to mid range), 3.2khz (range of speech), and 12.8khz (high frequency). The best way to observe how your equalizer works would be to play something and adjust one control at a time to see what it does. You will notice a difference. Then it basically becomes a project to adjust the unit to the way that you like to hear your music. You like bass, boost the low frequencies. Like the highs, boost them. Give it a try.

AM reception depends on orientation of the radio. Take the radio from its handle (top side up) and rotate it until you find the best signal. If it has Automatic Tuning, take the radio outside, find the best direction and initiate the ATS. Once the stations are recorded in memory, tune to one radio and listen. If that reception is poor rotate the radio without changing the frequency on the dial.

Very bad am radio reception, how do i fix?

If it's interference from the high tension wires,you probably need new spark plug wires with good resistor type plugs.
Now,also a bad antenna or a poor match of frequency to the antenna from the rec eiver can cause weak reception.Anyone who knows electronics can match the antenna to the receiver. don-ohio

Emerson rp 6247 radio AM stations does not come in clear

Try moving the telescopic antenna around in different directions until you get a clear reception. If that doesn't work, try moving the whole unit (radio) to another location. Make sure you are using the tuning knob to switch between stations. Moving it to a different location may be the best thing because the radio antenna may be received in frequency waves from another electronic device (i.e. a television set, another radio or in microwave) which is causing a reception to be poor.

Solution #1
Some counties have two frequency channels. check this URL address to see if you have another frequency channel for your area- If you do, try the other frequency channel for your area.

Solution #2
You may be receiving a poor reception quality because of where the radio is located or the antenna's positioning. First play with the antenna until you get a better reception. If this doesn't help, try moving it to a location near a window or outside room. If this doesn't help, you may have to buy an external antenna from an electronics store and hook it up to your radio. If you still have your WR-100 Owner's Manual, they have a page in there for reception (page 12), and it lists in there their suggested weather radio antenna.

Solution #3
It may not be anything you've done at all. It could be the weather station's transmitter itself. May you should call your local NWS office and plea your case to them.

You can purchase a in-line amplifier to boost radio signal, or just buy a new deck for less than $100 and get it installed. Great deals out there for decks below $100 installed. Try Best Buy or Fry's electronics.

How i can unloock my phone

>>Motorola Phones
>>Boost Mobile

I activate phones for Boost Mobile.

I'm sorry to tell you, but an ic902 can never be unlocked to work properly on any other system - to include the Boost system. Here's why. The ic902 is a hybrid phone. That is, it uses two different cellular systems to operate. Specifically, voice calls on the ic902 are placed over the Sprint CDMA network and Push-to-Talk (PTT) calls are transmitted over Nextel's iDEN network.

Boost Mobile calling (both, voice and PTT) uses the iDEN network from Nextel. Thus, the ic902's radio transmitter (which is CDMA) cannot make calls on the Boost ( iDEN ) system.

Moreover, if you plan to use Boost Mobile, I STRONGLY suggest that you NOT purchase a Nextel phone and have it unlocked to use for Boost.

Although Nextel and Boost phones seem the same - they are not. If you look at the model number of Nextel phones most of them end in a zero. (ie., i850, i870 etc.) where Boost Mobile Phones end with the number five. (ie., i855, i875, etc.) This is because the transmitters in the phones are set to different frequencies for different purposes (like for texting.)

If you go to eBay for example, those who sell unlocked Nextel phones to use for Boost (if they're honest) will inform potential buyers in their eBay listings that their unlocked Nextel phone will not (text, for example) on the Boost network. These unlocked Nextel phones will have limitations when used on Boost.

To prevent problems down the road, ALWAYS purchase a Boost phone to use on the Boost network.

If this information has been helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer.

Audio settings for pioneer DEH-P3100UB

The q1w and all that- is a way to fine tune your eq settings: the q means "frequency" the w means wide and the n means narrow. if you choose to boost your lows at 125 hz which is a low midbass the q selection you choose will focus more on the frequencies very close(narow) to that frequency. if you choose a w setting it will spread the boost to frequencies further away(wider) from the center frequency(125hz) Dink around with it and you will notice the way it contours the sound a little. The different numbers associated with the lows mids or highs are the frequencies that you want to boost when you're adjusting your sound-example if you turn up the bass and it starts distorting your speakers = go into settings 2 and change the "lows" Q to a higher frequency(change 80 hz to 125hz) and that way it wont muddy up your sound quite as bad if at all
