Note: Most AM broadcasting services in Australia use the medium frequency (MF or MW) band and occupy the frequency range between 526.5kHz and 1606.5kHz, with each channel designated by its carrier frequency. The standard channel spacing is in Australia is 9kHz. There are also many AM radio stations above the standard AM broadcast frequency range which the AR-1733 will allow you to tune into. To change the AM tuning band from 522-1620kHz to 520-1710kHz on the AR-1733, firstly make sure the Radio is Off ie time displayed. Press and hold the channel spacing 9/10kHz button until the display reads MW 10kHz. This changes the AM tuning band to 520-1710kHz with 10kHz spacing. You can now enter the exact station frequency ie 1683kHz by pressing the FREQ button, then the AM frequency by using the keypad 1, 6, 8, and 3. Pressing the 9/10kHz button again will change it back to the standard 522-1620kHz with 9kHz spacing.
