Default R75 frequency display

Well, this maybe the dumbest question to be posted on this site. I got myself a R75 and I've confused myself on how to read the frequency. Those 2 decimal points are throwing me off. Can someone post an example of how my display would look if I'm trying to tune the time signal on 5000khz and on 10000khz. I don't know if I'm suppose to put a zero in front of the first number or what. Bought on eBay with no manual. Tried YouTube with no videos on such a basic question.

Hope that made sense. I have a Tescun 660 and it was a bit easier for my tiny brain to comprehend.

Just punch "5" and "enter" or "10" and "enter", and you'll orientate visually what it'll read for 5megs and 10megs. A longwave example-if you want 30kHz, punch "00300" then "enter" and you'll see the numbers fall within the decimals on the readout as 0.030.00
