have you tried to program a memory channel within that range as it will not scan if there are no appropriate memory channels programmed I will fire mine up to see if it has the same issue ( I don't normally listen below 80Mhz )


Edit Mine wont accept frequencies below 66Mhz either, just comes up with Error on display if I try to program any thing below 66Mhz and if I try to manually tune below 66Mhz it jumps to 1Ghz. It would appear the manual is wrong

may have been a modified version of the firmware , mine has a serial number just below 65003000 and a Cat no 20-941B and the label on the rear gives the lowest range as 66-88Mhz

See my edits regarding the label on the rear lowest range is 66-88Mhz

often manufacturers retain the option to modify the specs without warning
