Question about Grundig S350 AM/FM/SW Radio
This is the second S350 I have owned in the past two years. The antenna on my first one broke back in the summer. On my new one, everything works fine, except for one thing. The readout on the digital display while in MW mode is off by 2 kilohertz. This means that if I want to tune into, say, 1360 kHz, I have to tune to 1362 if I want it to come in the best. I've tried resetting it a bazillion times, but no luck. I'd appreciate any help you guys can offer.
The radio is analog with a digital display. Mine displays off all the time, you can try turning the other switches on it just slightly. Just move them a tiny amount. This seems to correct my problems. Heat is also another factor with these things, they drift all over the place.

remove the batteries from the battery compartment. Insert a
pointed object, such as straightened paper clip, into the RESET hole
on the right, front side of the radio and gently press and release the
button inside the hole. Then plug in the AC adaptor or reinstall the
