    Radio's are the same but calibrations are not,(I think?) you're local HD dealer can change your radio calibration from USA to UK or whatever with the digital tech laptop.(just takes 5 mins.) Check with HD for sure, unless anyone else on the forum has hands on experience.

    Ok, what are you talking about? Radio calibration?? A USA radio has to be calibrated to pick up stations if it goes across the pond? I thought they stopped when a signal was received, no matter if it was odd or even number station. I thought radio waves were radio waves?
    Next I'll hear the language has to be changed.

    I never noticed/realized that US radio stations end in odd numbers after the decimal. I just went and checked the classic and both cages. All scans end in .1,.3.,.5,.7, and .9.

    I learned two things today (cyl.oil jet size, & radio .scan) that I had never even thought of knowing before, but for some reason am quite pleased to know. HD Talking is great!

    Brian; You are in Scotland right? And your radio stations are both .odd and .even? Was that on a digital scan radio and FM frequency?

    Yes digital scan on fm most stations seemed to be on odd numbers but a few were on even so needs to do both here
