La radio

Just realised that duolingo teaches 'el radio' to mean 'radio' rather than 'la radio', but it is a feminine noun!

I think it can be both masculine and feminine.
El radio is the physical device, La radio is the medium.

according to it's only masculine when it mean the radius of a circle, or the spoke of a wheel, but when talking about the radio, it's feminine

When I looked at for radio translated English to Spanish it said the principle translations were:-

radio n (broadcast apparatus) radio nf
radio n (receiving apparatus) radio nm
