When I say "nearly dead", I mean "any condition, as long as it has a good ferrite aerial in it" - because my sister's didn't survive a drop test from her kitchen bookshelf! This doesn't bother her as she only listens to Radios 2 and 4, but her husband likes to listen to 5 Live...

What size ferrite rod are you after? I have a drawer full of them from a workshop clearout. Might have something suitable.

I'll have a look, Rich; I'll chuck the verniers in my car and measure the rod next time I'm over at my sister's place.

I've subsequently bought a dead set so I'm closing the thread now.
