I think having the display showing MHz for the air band would have been a better choice on Grundig's part, but it really doesn't matter that much. Its just a matter of moving the decimal point to the left three places.
As far as getting better reception on the air band, here are some tips:

1. Use an antenna.
2. Try other antennas.
3. Find a known active freq.
4. Find a freq. low of FM spurs.
5. Turn up the volume.

I own and use a G6, and get decent results with it on the airband.

What does narrow band mean?


From the FCC website:
" Narrowbanding is an effort to ensure more efficient use of the VHF and UHF spectrum by requiring all VHF and UHF Public Safety and Industrial/Business land mobile radio (LMR) systems to migrate to at least 12.5 kHz efficiency technology by January 1, 2013.

More specifically, all existing Part 90 radio systems operating in the 150-174 MHz and 421-512 MHz bands have until January 1, 2013 to convert those systems either to a maximum bandwidth of 12.5 kHz or to a technology that provides at least one voice path per 12.5 kHz of bandwidth or equivalent efficiency."

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.

No sound.


Read the manual. The radio may have been set to some defaults, although the time was not correct. When you started setting the time, it is possible that you should have run through the whole setup. For example some radios have different ranges for the FM bands: there is a Japanese band that starts at 76 MHZ, and ends at 108 MHz; there is the standard FM band from 88 MHz to 108 MHz; and a school band (I can't remember its range).
For AM the gap between neighboring positions may be set at 9 kHz or 10 kHz depending on the location (region or continent).
I suggest you get the manual and see if there is an initial setup procedure, then follow it.

Can the GRECOM PSR255. be used to scan for aircraft /airband frequencies


Your radio is not capable of recieving air band frequencies. It will only receive 4 bands consisting of: 26 - 54 MHz; 68 - 88 MHz; 137 - 174 MHz and 380 - 512 Mhz.

The VHF airband uses the frequencies between 108 (just above commercial FM radio) and 137 MHZ (just below 2 meter Ham radio). Amplitude Modulation ("AM") is the mode that transmissions are made. The lowest 10 MHz of the band, from 108-117.95 MHz, is split into 200 narrow-band channels of 50 kHz. These are reserved for navigational aids such as VOR beacons, and precision approach systems such as ILS localizers

Can only receive forgein channels


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

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:
