My worst ultralight radio ever - Digitech Audio AR1736

Recently I purchased this radio from Jaycar in Hobart, thinking it would make a good backup receiver, it was a huge mistake.
The video below shows just one example of how poorly it preforms. The station on 1008 kHz is a 5KW station about 10 KM from my home. As can be seen in the video it is audible up to 30 kHz below and over 100 kHz above the correct frequency. Using the Digitech Audio AR1736 of a night time is a waste of time as all you are able to hear is a mix of frequencies.
