Hi again, Seems you posted twice. A copy of my reply to your other post.... 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.

It has to do with the internal programming of the digital tuning. there is no user servicable means of changing the increments of the tuner knob. all the "on job" radios I've run across [milwaukee, dewalt] increment in .2Mhz steps and I can't find anything inside [dip switches or other] to change the incrementation.

SOURCE: FM frequecy increases/decreases too mugh pr. step

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.

You have buttons to press to change the modulation.
FM covers regular FM band: 76 MHz (Japan) to 108 MHz and the higher frequency ones used for Air and Weather.
AM covers the Long waves (in Europe), the regular AM band (520 kHz-1700 kHz), and the Short wave bands 2MHz 30 MHz
It seems that you can tune the frequency in by direct entry with the number keys.
I do not see the image of the face of the radio but from my experience with many Grundig/Eton you should have two buttons with arrows (left A and Right Arrow) or two buttons with + and Minus (not the volume buttons). If you are in SW, pressing one of the buttons changes the tuning to the adjacent Meter band.

Freq displat out on Eton sat 750 on airband


It should not be very significant. The gap between two neighboring channels in AM/SW can, on some radios, be set to 9 kHz or 10 kHz depending on countries. For FM the separation is about 100 kHz or 0.1 MHz. Set the right frequency then use the Lock feature. It will prevent any shift/drift of frequency ( and any other changes) until you unlock.

Can only receive forgein channels


See the swection on "Listening to the radio" on page 24 of the manual...


http://www.retrevo.com/support/Onkyo-TX-SR500-Receivers-manual/id/365ag205/t/2/

You can switch the AM band tuning steps between 9 kHz and 10 kHz.

The initial setting is 9 kHz. Please set the AM tuning step frequency to match the AM band tuning step frequency in your area.

USA and Canadian models 10 kHz

Other models 9 kHz

Press MEMORY while holding down TUNER.
Note: All the preset stations are erased when you switch the AM band tuning steps.

Why can't i listen to aircraft pilots & tower on my Uniden bearcat BC60XLT-1? Our airband frequency here is 108-137 mhz.


Your scanner does not receive frequencies between 54 and 137 MHz, and there's nothing you can do to enable reception in that block. Your only option is to purchase a scanner with air band coverage. Here are the reception ranges of the BC-60XLT-1:

29.0-29.7 MHz 10 Meter Amateur Band
29.7-50 MHz VHF Low Band
50-54 MHz 6 Meter Amateur Band
137-144 MHz Military Land Mobile
144-148 MHz 2 Meter Amateur Band
148-174 MHz VHF High Band
Above bands in 5 kHz steps
406-420 MHz Federal Government
420-450 MHz 70 cm Amateur Band
450-470 MHz UHF Standard Band
470-512 MHz UHF "T" Band
Above bands in 12.5 kHz steps

Need the manual for your scanner? You can download and print it, at no cost, here:

I need a instuction manual and freq. cheat sheet for my galaxy dx88hl.thanks Rod


To use this radio on the CB band, you set the 10 Khz switch to OFF, and then turn the band switch to A/E.

Here is a Frequency Chart.
Here is the manual.

When the 10 Khz switch is on OFF, the band switch is E,F,G,H. When the 10 Khz switch is in the ON position, then the band switch is A,B,C,D.

So when you are on band E, which is when the 10 Khz is OFF, and the band switch is in the first position, it is on the E band.

I would get your self a Frequency counter. It makes using a radio like that much easier.

Hope this helps!
