'[Wayyyy OT] No. of bands?'

Hello all,

I forgot to tell everyone (but who cares? <g>) that I switched email
addys. Here's something that is NOT related to PICs whatsoever, but it's
interesting.

I just ripped apart a Sony (I love their stuff) CD Player/Radio. I'm
reading the boards and come across two squares that say "2Band" and
"3Band".  In the 2Band square, there are 3 smaller boxes (more like
checkboxes) with the letters "J U AE" and in the 3Band square there are
two boxes "AE UK". So me thinks, do radios in the UK have 3 bands? or
are these boxes I found completely irrelevant to countries? By the way,
the checkbox under the "U" is marked, so I'm assuming it means US 2-Band
radio (AM/FM).

I realize this is VERY OT, but you guys are the smartest people in the
world, and really the only resource I have.

TIA

Yep, in the UK a standard radio will have 3 bands - Medium wave, long wave
(both AM) and FM
from looking at my little radio, it seems that MW goes from about 520 - 1610
Khz
LW goes from 150 - 280 Khz and FM is 87.5 - 108 Mhz

Hope that helps

btw what is the correct way to respond to OT messages? Reply to the list or
only to the sender and keep it off the list?

One thing to be aware of is the channel spacings if this is a digital
tuner.

If the tuning increments in steps rather than single units then you will
have problems. I believe US AM channel spacing is 10KHz but in the UK it is
9KHz.

Looking at my (former granny«s) old Grundig radio there is also a "Short Wave" 5,5 to 16 MHz.  also AM

Making total 4 bands, named L M K U in increasing frequency.

It is more tna 30 yrs old, and only service i have done is blowing out some dust now and then.  The indicator lamps of course are gone.

Old multiband manual tuning radios like this is a cheap way to check for some RF emissons.  (just have to turn off the PC, modem, router etc first...)
Other than being a good test equipment it is a fine radio to listen to too :)
