Here is the manual for a Midland 77-250. Is this your model?


In it it describes the frequency alignment procedure for the radio, (scroll down to p.9 onwards). It shows that you need to have the appropriate test equipment that is usually only carried by specialist repairers.

If you have just recently purchased your radio from new and find that none of the channels are working correctly then I suggest that you either return it to the place of purchase and explain the problem and see if they will help you or consult the warranty documentation that came with the radio as to what you have to do to make a claim for a warranty repair or replacement.

Hi , so I took the 77-250k to a specialist yesterday and was told it can't be converted to fm (uk) , which I find strange because Pama managed it , if anyone is up to the challenge. I would love to prove this caracter wrong ( price if possible please ) many thanks
