Sirius is a satellite biased service , so it uses a satellite antenna , local stations how ever don't use that antenna and use a dipole antenna , are both type antenna's connected to your radio , lots of installers don't bother to connect local antenna to new radio installs , im mean you got Sirius why'd you want local stuff anyway is there thinking
red-power(keyed), yellow-power(constant), Black-ground, Blue-remote(usually to amp), this is the basics to get power to the radio. The rest(white/white-black, green/green-black, gray/gray-black...are for speakers)
I see you've already read the "Troubleshooting" section of the manual! The only other things I can think of to check would be the actual connection between the radio (aka head unit) and the antenna. It's usually just a press-fit connection behind the radio, but if it's loose, corroded, or is touching some other metal, it could affect the reception. There's also the small possibility something changed at the transmitter tower for the radio station. That happened in my area once, where they changed the direction in which most of the signal power was being broadcast. Westside reception got better, eastside reception got worse.
The 0.2MHz odd steps are standard for US radios.
Try resetting the radio (recessed button under the front panel)
If this a US radio then this may not help.
If you have lost the manual then go here:-
Come back and say if this helped or not, I could dig a bit deeper..
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.
