Smallest DAB Pocket Radio Unveiled

Goodmans launches a model that is both easy on your pocket and your wallet.

So we’ve had possibly the best value DAB radio to date and now for the most pocket friendly one…

The Goodmans ‘GHDAB101’ (which sounds like an entry level class in acronyms) is claimed to be the smallest stand alone DAB/FM radio in the world and at just 69.5 x 44 x 21.4mm and 48g I would be hard pressed to disagree (do you?).

As you might expect for a device so tiny, it doesn’t pack in the largest of feature sets but there is a tidy blue backlit display to show station name, volume level, signal strength and battery level plus the ability to store up to 10 presets. A pair of AAA batteries provide no less than 10 hours of DAB listing or 15 hours of FM as well so there’s stamina in (s)the GHDAB…(/s) this little fella.

As for signal, the GH… etc etc pulls that age old trick of utilising the headphones as an aerial and with over 90 per cent of the UK population (note, not geography) now covered by DAB you should get decent reception – but do your research first.

The Goodmans (overly long named) GHDAB101 goes on sale immediately for a wallet friendly £44.99 and you can rest smug in the knowledge that for a fraction of the outlay you can enjoy something no iPod touch owner can…
