People tend to think that radio anoraks spend their time listening to radios and fiddling with their aerials to tweak reception. I was amazed to look out of our hotel window to see this afficianado at work. In these days of digital tv getting perfect reception is most frustrating and drives people to desparate measures. Please do not try this at home yourself. I am happy to report that the person pictured here was not injured in his efforts, in spite of standing periously near the edge of the roof. Indeed he had a stash of alternative aerials at the entrance to the roof!
This chap is no couch potato – it pays to exercise in between television programmes!
