Subject: RE: FM reception
From: Chuck Urwiler (
Date: 2003-11-10

Hi Linus,

Well, I finally tried the F3 button today. I do notice a slight difference
in the noise. It doesn't affect the noise level, but it does change the
frequency of "ticks" that I hear in the background noise of the FM radio.

I finally realized that my FMR is just too close to my computers during
the day for it to get any decent FM reception. I had to shut down
everything for a short while as I needed to re-plug somethings to make
room for a new device (printer/scanner) and lo and behold the reception
was better. I know, no duh! :)

Anyway, doesn't seem F3 makes all that much difference - unless I was
trying to record, perhaps. You FM recording folks should check it out.

Thanks again, Linus, for the continual updates.

While we're on the subject, please try the latest daily build and press
F3 in the radio screen. This stops all screen updates. Please report if
that makes a difference in the reception.
