USA - EUrope FM band stations frequency differences

We bought a Stingray Motor Boat. After receiving the boat, we saw that the receiver-mp3 player is suitable for USA not for Europe (fm stations are broadcasting 0.2 mhz frequency difference in States but in europe this is 0.05 mhz) so we can not receive some stations like 88.2 mhz.

Is it possible to set up that feature?

I have a car stereo purchased from the US and I can’t pick up all radio stations in Europe/UK, what can I do?
If you have purchased a car stereo from the US you will find that it will not pick up many European radio stations. This is due to the fact that US radio frequency steps are different to here in Europe.
You may be able to set the tuner to European stations by following this procedure.
Press and hold down the SRC button to power down the unit completely.
While the unit is off press button 1 & 5 together, while momentarily pressing the SRC button.
If this does not work try the following proceedure;
Press and hold buttons 1 and 5 together, while momentarily pressing the reset button.
If this does not work then the unit is not designed to pick up European frequency steps.

Sorry to say, but as far as I can tell in the instruction manual you only have a band from 87.9 MHz to 107.9 MHz FM and no way of switching that. Good luck.

My Kenwood Radio (New) for my boat doesn't tune properly on FM. For example, it only tunes to 94,1 or 94,3 but not to 94,2 It is just ,1 digit off the frequency on most stations. Tried it on manua


Hi there,

Kenwood receivers are usually tuned for their intended destination country, hence the frequency "stepping" of the tuners may differ between countries.

Was this receiver originally intended for your country's frequency? If yes, then contact Kenwood customer service for further advice.

If not, contact your local Kenwood service agent and ask whether the frequency stepping can be reprogrammed.

You can also change the desired radio band by pressing BAND.

Change car stereo frequency from USA to UK


On many imported cars , the radios have options for different areas of the world (UK/EUROPE : ASIA  : USA+Americas  etc. )
 
If you have a MENU button  on your radio , see if you can find the Area choice option.
 
Once found , then it is just a matter of switching to the area required ( In your case UK/EUROPE)

No, the frequency step is a hardware characteristic, it can't be modified. But you should receive all radio channels anyway, by law they are 0.3MHz apart. Do another full automatic search, if a channel is between one of those steps the Automatic Frequency Control (which every FM radio has since the 80's) will adjust it for you.

I have a Sony cdx-c5005 in my Bryany boat that doesn't get any FM reception. CDs work perfectly fine.


Make sure that antenna is plugged in CXD-C5005 to provide radio signal to tuner, without antenna it wont give you any station sound.

Very weird Radio Tuning Problem


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.

Problems with FM with


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.

FM channels


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.
