Bluetooth speaker with FM radio.

Post by Longwave » Tue Aug 02, 2022 7:37 am

Just wondering if anyone has an idea about Bluetooth speakers that include an FM radio chip. The question is, since these speakers with the radio are manufactured in Asia is the FM frequency range already 76 MHz-108 MHz or even as low as 64 MHz on these devices. The FM frequency range is not listed on any of the Bluetooth with FM speakers that I have. Anyone have an idea?

Sorry Longwave. What are you asking here?
Recommendations of certain brands?
You've seen certain brands with the extended receive and are asking what others think of them?
Thanks.

One of my many "irons in the fire" is troubleshooting remote control locomotives and overhead cranes.
Most of them operate up in 450-470, at frequencies I can easily receive with a cheap handheld scanner.
Being able to listen to the transmitter is a great watershed troubleshooting tool.
Some of the remote locomotives are down on 72 MHz. Having an inexpensive receiver that can go that low would be nice.


It's tickles me that someone who says there's all kinds of jobs out there, can't seem to find a job.

I’m asking if anyone knows if these Bluetooth w/FM speakers are already including the expanded FM band since these devices are manufactured in Asian countries. I thought maybe someone would already have information on this. None of these devices include any specs on the FM band coverage.
