Radio reception around the country

Hi, I generally listen to the radio in the van on my travels; SW Scotland, West Coast, N.Wales etc
I lose the signal for R4 quite a lot and seem to be constantly having to fiddle with tuning all the time.
Does this happen to anyone else??

Re: Radio reception around the country

I think in the areas Ricko mentions It's to do with signal rather that reception.

There's nothing worse than getting half way through a good play and loosing reception.  I have been known to backtrack and park up.

I avoid it now by using internet radio on my phone through a front input on my radio.  There seem to be far more gaps in radio coverage than there are for phone signals.
