Here it is how it stands at the moment:

FM
1: C91.3
2: Smooth 95.3
3: 101.7 WSFM
4: SWR 99.9
5: 104.1 2Day

12: 2LT 101.1

AM
1: 702 ABC Radio Sydney
2: 630 NewsRadio
3: 576 Radio National
4: 1170 2CH
5: 1107 SBS Radio 1
6: 1368 2GN (will no longer exist if/when it moves to FM)

I don’t quite use frequency order - my FM 1 is instead:

1 = KIIS 101.1
2 = Fox 101.9 = 102
3 = Nova 100.3
4 = Gold 104.3
5 = Triple M 105.1
6 = Triple J - which ruins the system, so obviously I should replace it with PBS.

I can’t remember what I have on FM2/3, I’ve got Smooth and Joy in there at least, but the rest is usually just regional/community with no particular order to them.

AM doesn’t use a system, but at the moment it is - SEN, MSR, SEN+, ABC 774, ABC News, 3KND. SEN+ is only in there because I haven’t replaced it since it was Classic Rock.

#329

Good to see you have the local ones in your set @hatdj :grin:


#330

Should re-save your presets: both of these stations have updated RDS names :wink:


#331

It’s very clear to me how sophisticated new radios are with regards to tuning. The stock radio in my sedan, which was pretty decent for its time (2000) just sounded awful on FM compared to my new Sony XAV-AX100. The old radio lost reception going north at around Hornsby, but now I can clearly pick up Sydney FM stations all the way up to Wyong, and from then on it’s occasionally listenable all the way to Newcastle.


#332

If you take the old Pacific Hwy through Doyalson and up the east side of Lake Macquarie, it’s usually listenable all the way up to Charlestown (which is on a big hill just 10 kms south of Newcastle).


#333

Here are my presets. Bit lazy to write them. I was listening to 2st not a preset. It was refreshing to hear some rain activity out at Richmond. Funny it is so far away from 2st itself, I miss local radio.


#334

Does your car radio allow you to mix FM and DAB presents?

If so, very handy feature to have!

Looks like a JBL branded system.

Which car is that?


#335

At the end of the day, I am just lazy and the radio seems to work!

#341

Yeah it does. Its a Kia Carnival. Nice car. I like the radio, but I do miss the old fashion radio where you use a simple dial but no complaints, great Android auto, jbl speakers, a lot better than my previous car with those horrible dab glitches.


#342

I agree that a dial is better for tuning than buttons. but I couldn’t go back to the old slide rule (analogue) display. Digital display (frequency display) tuning is soooooo good.
