hello
I have a SC-811 in my volvo and I can listen only few radiostations,
because this unit has " tune step " 0.2 MHz
for example :
92.1 - 92.3 - 92.5
almost all stations are betwen this values :(
- do You know how can I solve this problem ?

thx

Yeah, ...
Name radio-station that are on even decimal frequencies like 92.0 or
92.2 or 92.4

By law all radio stations are in the odd decimal frequencies !

Move to the USA! Tell them you are part of the coalition of the willing at
immigration, it should work well!
Sorry no useful answer, however.

Quite a few of them in Europe, as it happens.

In the USA, that's the case. Regulations on radio frequency usage vary
around the world, though.

Yes; unfortunantly, you have a North American spec radio; you'll need to
remove it and replace it with a European spec unit.

This works on a SC-816, not sure about the 811:

Radio off, ignition on or accessory position. Press and hold preset 5,
then turn the radio on. Your display will read "USA". Release the 5
button, then press it once more. Your display should now read "AUS".
Turn the radio off, then back on. Your tuner should now stop at 0.1 MHz
steps.

Don't replace it - I bet there's a way to reprogram it...I don't
believe there are different radios for differnt markets any more...
