how to do an alignment on Grundig FR-200?


Aug 30, 2023
I have a Grundig FR-200. like every other radio, the tuner doesn't exactly match the random numbers sprinkled across the dial.


I think it would be useles to try to align the radio to make the tuner match the dial better. I don't think it will match everything. anyways the numbers are too big to have any precision and I would rather have definite numbers like 1, 2, 3 etc.

I can design my own scale that matches the actual frequencies it has with the numbers I want. then laminate it and replace the original.

but then I thought why not adjust the alignment (if possible) so SW1 runs 3.0 to 9.0 MHz and SW2 from 9.0 to 18 MHz, so there is no gap between them and it leaves off >18 MHz which never gets any stations anyway.

I can't find a service manual for an FR-200 to know which trimmers to tweak. you would think there would be such a thing because there are a million of these in circulation.

anybody know which ones do what?
