Looking into this to use as a receiver for an FM transmitter I use for biology fieldwork. The manual says that it tunes FM in 50 and 100kHz increments--can you confirm this?


Cheers and thanks,
Michael

Michael, my wife uses the U3 at work where she leaves it, so I can't test this feature for you, but I'd hope the manual is accurate.

Bests.

My friend says it should work as you want it to.

Thanks!

Just received the radio yesterday and as far as I can tell, it only tunes in 200 kHz increments on odd frequencies.

The manual reads, "A single press on either rotate the Tuning Control knob will change the frequency in the following increments: FM:50 or 100 kHz..." [sic]. That doesn't exactly inspire confidence in their description. If anyone knows how to make it tune even frequencies as well, please share.

Thanks.
