FM radio frequency converter
A useful note for members importing a Japanese specification MG RV8 and avoids having to replace the radio, is provided by Bryan Ditchman (Caribbean Blue 0265). (Nov 00)

Classic Restorations at Burnham on Sea in Somerset have had a number of Japanese re-imports through their hands and can supply a very compact FM radio expander for converting the Japanese radio frequency to the UK range thereby obviating the need for removing and changing the radio itself. Classic Restorations have kindly offered to supply these expanders to V8 Register members at a reduced price

of only £19.00, including postage and packaging (price correct in October 2000). Members interested in obtaining an expander should call Tony Walters at Classic Restorations on 01278 781199.

Downunder, Bruce Webster reports that FM radio frequency extenders (they are roughly the size of a matchbox) can be purchased from Strathfield Car Radios for about $A40 each.
