Question about Sangean HDR-1 Radio

Open Question

Volume varies I have just started using my new HD table top radio. I love the quality, but have a problem with the volume (broadcast) on both AM and FM fading just a bit, then coming back strong. The stations are never lost but the volume varies. It is annoying. I live relatively close by air 15 miles, from the KMOX transmission tower. It is a 50K clear channel station and appears to have a very clear signal, yet the volume wavers just enough to be noticed. This also occurs on FM stations. Is there anything I can do to improve this? I have moved the external AM antenna to different spots to no avail.

You can get good assistance at the DX 398 Group at Yahoo! The DX 398 is the same radio as the ATS-909. It was the name used by Radio Shack when they marketed it. Here's the URL for the DX398 group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DX398/ They will definately welcome your questions and will likely provide some valuable answers.

Remove the battery compartment door and the batteries. There should be a small hole marked "reset" under the upper battery cradle. Press (gently...until it clicks) and hold for 5 seconds. Replace batteries and try again.

SOURCE: Sangean ATS-803A - no audio

If its not a micro-p glitch, sounds like the radio was subject to a spike or surge wile plugged into the AC adapter. If the "power" light stays on all the time, thats what happened. Believe me, I was Sangean America's tech from 1990-1995.

The fix is to replace a transistor, or fet in the main pwr supply. (Close to where the adaptor plugs in.)
I wish I could give more details, but its been 14 long, long years.

Either this is typical shortwave reception characteristics, or you intermittent antenna connection.

How do i tune Mazda Demio (2004 model) radio to Southern African frequencies?


fm frequencies are just that fm frequencies ( not japanese, chinese ,english or anything else
it is a range of frequencies in the fm band that local stations broadcast on
so all you have to do is to turn the tuner knob until you get 107 fm
so as you turn the knob you will loose 89 and it will go probably 90.5 , 100.20, 102.7 etc and if there is a station broadcasting that your radio will pick up it will come in and then fade out as you keep moving the knob
you may have to change the mode as there are fm 1 ,fm 2,fm 3 bands to get your fm 107 as it will depend on what megahertz 107 is operating on

Why won't FM radio work on the Motorola 6310 two-way radio?


Hi,

It's a two way communications radio, not a broadcast radio, hence it won't receive FM/AM broadcast radio stations.

You should not confuse the two as they work on different radio bands, most FM broadcast radios are on the 86-108MHz bands, whereas two way radios operate on the following bands:
1-86MHz, 108-174MHz, 220-520MHz & 865-920MHz

I don't know which band your radio works on, but not broadcast bands I'm sure.

The only exception to this is the smaller hand helds, which may have FM broadcast programmed, but if this is the case with yours, This issue is out of the realm of two way radio queries, as Broadcast radio is not two way radio, but one way radio, and I'm not competent enough to answer Broadcast radio issues.

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

What is the FM radio frequency to use the Hannah Montana Wireless Microphone?


FM 99.7 works best.... However if you have a local FM station using that freq your out of luck UNLESS your handy with a Jewelers screwdriver. Calling tech support will get you a "sorry" but there is nothing we can do. So if you are one of the unlucky ones with a Local 99.7 FM station here is what you can do.

1) Find a dead spot on the FM radio band either at the very low end or high end of the range. You should hear just fuzz (white noise) on your radio. However, on many newer FM tuners if there is no station broadcast there is nothing but silence.
2) Put batteries in the microphone.
3) Get a really really tiny flat head (Jewelers)screwdriver just like the kind in those eye glass kits they sell at the grocery store.
4) Sit right in front of the radio
5) Insert the screwdriver into the tiny hole in the microphone and tune the microphone until the radio goes quiet (no fuzz sound). Or.... you can keep pressing S to hear a beat and the beat is acutally heard through the speakers.

The hole is located just to the left of the screw that you undid to get at the battery compartment, but it's off center. Inside this hole is a small tuning screw. Slowly, slowly, SLOWLY turn the screw driver until you here a change or interruption in the fuzz sound on the radio speakers. This will indicate you found a compatible frequency. Then even slower - tune back to that "notch" until you hear nothing but silence on the radio. Test it by pressing the applause button "A" or by pressing the mic "M" button and talking.

There are multiple places on the FM dial that will "work" as you tune the little screw but you should have already manually selected where (the FM freq) you want to use your mic.

Once it's working it ain't perfect. I doubt you'd do a serious performance on it, but the kids love it.
The mic quality is not top notch for sure.

Fine tune as necessary....

During television programming the volume fades and comes back


Could be a audio compression issue, try looking into the direct audio menu to see if you can set audio compression, this is common on cable box broadcast, could be more so with satellite.
