Hi Peter,

thanks!

This makes it clear with the radio and also the fan issue is good to
know about.

We are looking for a shop in Frankfurt am Main, preferably just on the
main shopping mall ZEIL and say starting from subway station
Konstablerwache, which has the recent Typhoon OEM in stock or the Kworld
NB-TV 220, which might be the sam then. Also no radio as far I have
seen. Conrad Electronics exactly there has it not.

Else we must go to such outlet centers in the peripherie along the
highways, we just want to buy it, waiting for delivery takes too long.

Sunday is not good to check it out ...

Cheers,
Hermann
