Notes:

On the wall left of the living room tv is a switch that will turn on/off the terrace speakers (we have neighbours!)

Please, please do not try to alter any of the wiring/cables behind the amplifier

Please, please do not alter any settings (speakers etc.)

As with most electronic devices there are several ways to arrive at the same place! Below is how I’ve done it.

NOTE:

TUNER The reception of most FM stations is extremely poor on the island especially after the 2017 hurricane and we recommend using the Internet.

For HURRICANE information use Internet radio. Try to connect directly to RADIO TRANSAT or RADIO ST BARTH Google Radio Transat St Barthelemy and/or Radio St Barth. They got blown away during the hurricane - It’s the big stone building (left )on the way to the Boulangerie and Gustavia.
