Question about Grundig G4000A FM/AM Radio

1 Answer

AM/SW no longer functioning - FM still works fine

I am no longer able to receive AM or SW broadcasts on my radio. It still works perfectly on the FM band, but when I switch to the other two, I only hear "clicks" as I tune the radio up and down. It does show the digital frequency readout still, but it does not show anything for signal strength on AM or SW. Is there anything I can do myself, or should I send it in for repair? I contacted one repair facility that requires a $30 deposit to look at it. Would I be better off just buying a new radio? Thanks.

    I have the same issue with a different Grundig FM/AM/SW portable radio. A friend said the internal AM antenna (a small 'metal thing') had probably come loose/broken off internally. I took the case off but couldn't see anything obvious...

2003 grand marquis radio am does not work


Does anyone broadcast AM radio any more?

If you know you have a good AM station in your area, and you can verify its frequency, and your radio can't receive it but CAN receive FM stations... then that radio just isn't going to get AM. It's probably not worth fixing.

Nothing but static on all bands


There may be interferences from electrical appliances fridges, TV. Move the radio to some other place. For AM rotate the radio to get the best signal. For FM and SW deploy the telescopic antenna. For SW you may use an external antenna. For SW, to tune in on a station you need to know the broadcast time and the frequency.

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.

SW reception is very poor. Can receive no Ham operators only powerful broadcasts like Havanna. AM not bad, FM fair.


SW transmission depends on an atmospheric layer called the ionosphere. The density of ionized atoms present in the layer is dependent on the light from the sun and on solar activity. The rule of thumb is to tune in to the larger meter bands ( 49m, 41 m, 31m, 25m ) in the evening and at night and the shorter meter (31m, 25, 21, ...16, 10) bands in the day.

To tune in to a particular signal you need to know the exact frequency and the broadcast time. You can search the Internet for the frequencies of a particular radio station and the times when that station is broadcasting in direction of your region.

My 4 year old YB P 2000 suddenly quit broadcasting AM. I took the radio apart and cleaned everything. Now only some FM stations and no SW reception. Can you help?


Look at the front case and locate reset hole. Insert cocktale stick or similar and listen for slight click. Insert new batteries, ensuring correct polarity and that there has been no leakage from old batteries on terminals. If leakage ie green/ uneven appearance, try to scrape clean with suitable implement when disconnected from mains only.

Realistic pro 2020 scanner


The Realistic PRO-2052 is an old (vintage) scanner receiver with fixed AM and FM modes on the bands it cover, as specified by the U.S. band allocation. The PRO-2020 covers only the VHF and UHF frequencies and modes AM and FM is not user selectable. Frequencies can be programmed into any of the 20 memory channels

U.S. Coverage: (varies from state to state and other countries. We don't use 30-50 Mhz here in the Philippines for 2 way mobile communications, except for cordless phones)

30-50 Mhz Lower VHF at FM narrowband only (covers mobile, emergencies, businesses, etc. and
cordless phones)
108-136 Mhz Aircraft band at AM narrowband only
138-174 Mhz Amateur and Commercial band at FM narrowband only (2 meter band)
410-512 MHz Amateur and Commercial band at FM narrowband only (70 cm band)

If you're trying to select AM or FM for a specified frequency, I'm afraid you can't do that as it is not selectable.

If you are trying to program AM Broadcast frequencies (mediumwave (MW) or FM Broadcast frequencies (FM radio stations), those were not covered by your PRO-2020's microprocessor. Even if you modify your scanner to receive those bands, you will not hear radio transmission properly since the receiver do not decode FM wideband, which is the standard mode for FM broadcast and Television band.
