We have a great "oldies " station near Chicago but it's up at 1690 Khz in the AM band... My 93 Aspy radio only tunes up to 1620 Khz...

I read a post about an e-prom fix on the FM band to cover odd and even frequency spacing but I'm wondering if the same e-prom fix would apply to tuning higher on the AM band???

Anybody have any ideas or can help out???

Les, you need a frequency expander that will cover all the AM range. :waving:

Yes, a frequency adapter will do the job, the ones that span the full range are not much more expensive than the basic ones.

I haven't seen such on the American market, the only ones I know about are for the FM band for European use. I just checked my '93 Aspy and sure 'nuff. The problem is that the AM band goes up to 1715kHz in North America but only to 1615kHz in the rest of the world. Obviously the Japanese radio designer didn't consider that fact.

Paul's right about this. The AM expanders just don't cover the full range that some of us need.
