The 0.2MHz odd steps are standard for US radios.
Try resetting the radio (recessed button under the front panel)

Yep, you'll see a Play/Pause button. Just press that until it says DX Seek (or Seek if you want to skip over stations that are slightly farther away). Then press your tune buttons! If it still doesn't work while in DX or DX Seek mode, then hold the tune button for a second. It'll beep and start scanning to the next one!

Hi, it depends were you got the radio from mine is doing the same its a grey product and comes from US or other countries.If you are lucky just hold and press the setup key for +- 5 seconds and it will jump to setting HH then press the + or - button were you change the radio, go to area and turn knop on radio to US or other country thats working for you. Hope it helps
This is a USA model and by default in the USA all FM stations end in an Odd number. This is completely normal. you can try holding preset 1 and 5 down while pressing the reset button on the unit and it may allow you to switch to a Europe style of tuning.
I'm not completely certain about yours, but on most Sony decks you can get to a manual tuning mode by pressing and holding the seek buttons. In other words, if you press and release the tuning button, it will automatically jump to the next channel. If you press and hold the button for a second, it should beep and possibly start flashing an "M" on the screen. After that, it should stop scanning when you release the button, without jumping to the next station.
That is very typical of tuners designed for the US market; US FM radio stations use only the odd numbers. In most cases, tuners made for the US cannot be adjusted for use in other countries. However, a few have an "area" control that can be switched; usually it's part of the setup menu. Check out your owner's manual, if it's available.
since the 70's when they started, FM radios in cars have only showed like 101.9 and 102.1 in odd number tenths-of-Megahertz only, with a few rare exceptions. There are some high cost receivers that will show odds and evens. Your 102 station is really either one of like 101.9 or 102.1 for your Pioneer.
