Question about Makita BMR100 Radio
When searching the FM band, the frequecy increases in steps of ,2 Khz. So it will ie. go from 101.1 to 101.3 to 101.5.. I can't get it to stop at 101.2 101.4 101.6 and so on.. Can anyone please help??
Hi, Your post/description "the frequency increases in steps of .2 Mhz or 200Khz" refers to the increment of frequency spacing between tuning steps and is largely dependent on the radio standards of the country/region the radio is intended to be used. Assuming no hardware fault to the radio, tuning steps may be adjusted by: 1. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 2 seconds. This will display the current FM tuning step (200Khz as in your case); 2. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 10 seconds. This will display FM and a blinking 50Khz with a single beep sound. By rotating the Tuning Control you can increase or decrease this value. 3. pressing the Step/Band button again will move you to the tuning increments of the AM band again adjustable via the Tuning Control. 4. pressing the Step/Band button again will save the setting and complete the process. Hope this be of some help. Good luck and kind regards.

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

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when
tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press
