  1. can you please tell me how I activate the air band mode. I use left hand as main band, I press top button to change bands but it will not give me frequencies 108 mhz to 134 MHz rx. I bought the radio without manual but looking this up online has not helped. I listen to these frequencies as I find them interesting. Could you help me with this enquiry please. I can be contacted at thank you.

    1. Saw your question and wonder if you got it resolved? The disc that came with the radio programming cable has a utility on it to enable air band. I know it's been four years but what the heck...
