feorranhiering? Didn't know they had radio in AS times! I take it this is an OE version of 'far-hearing' - kind of transliterated from German?82.46.139.31 15:09, 10 Hrēþmōnaþ 2013 (UTC) (1812ahill on .en)

Yes, it is based on Germanic roots in Old English (feorran-/from afar and hȳran/hīerran/hear(ing)). These same roots exist in German. See also: Wikipedia:Hū_secge_ic and NWT. PiRSquared17 (talk) 20:26, 10 Hrēþmōnaþ 2013 (UTC)
It's similar to Feorrsīen (German: Fernsehen, Norwegian: Fjernsyn) and Feorrspreca (German: Fernsprecher). PiRSquared17 (talk) 20:30, 10 Hrēþmōnaþ 2013 (UTC)
