    the HD Radio part wont work, now for AM/FM, i its designed for USA frequencies and step

    we are 200khz step on FM, and 10k on AM

    example..

    101.5, 101.7, 103.1

    it will not tune to 101.6, 103.0
    -Thanks

    hmm.. cheers thanks for that mitch!

    So, I think ours are all odd frequencies as well - the main ones I listen to are 92.9, 93.7, 94.5, 96.1- I am assuming it would be ok? Maybe we have even as well - cant think of the top of me head.

    I just want to find a 'good' (reliable) tuner for radio on car PC - not overly fussed about the digital extras.

    might be worth a trial!

    Our AM is 9kHz vs USA 10kHz.

    Our FM pre/de-emphasis is 50usec vs USA 75usec. (Apparently that makes US radios sound harsh in Aus.)
    I think other specs are the same (19kHz pilot etc).

    Aus Freqs are 526.5kHz - 1605.5kHz (531,540, .......1602kHz) & 88-108MHz (88.1,88.3,........107.9MHz).

    You may want to look at the FM / DAB project here.

    Note: The module supports DAB+ which is what Australian's Digital Radio users.

    I have an HQCT-i up for sale as of....now in the classifieds, and I'm in Perth if that helps

    Works with aussie frequencies, I just used one of the Directed HD radio's instead, as it worked better with my design than the HQCT-i did.
