I want to listen to 151.4525 (local sheriffs dispatch)but will not program into my radio. When I program it, it comes up 151.450. I tried 12.5 step (however it will accept 151.4625) Wierd huh!  Any help will be greatly appreciated    THANKS, FRED

CAYUGA COUNTY? Try 151.450 or 151.455 instead of 151.4525 and be sure you're set for wide FM (5 kHz) -- the default IIRC, not narrow FM (2.5 kHz). Should be close enough.

Tnx KB1LKR for reply - I tried 5 khz wide but this function is for xmit only in FT60 - I still would like to know why I can't program 151.4525 into it. FRED

Because 452.5khz is not an even multiple of 12.5khz.

Or maybe I should say an exact multiple of 12.5 khz.

The reason for the odd frequency is that it is in a newer band plan of splinter frequencies. You won't get that frequency exact because of the step which the FT60R does not incorporate. Many modern scanners do that split, but not the FT60R. You'll just have to go with what the radio is capable, which is the next closest frequency. The frequency is of narrower bandwidth, but it will work fine just off frequency.
