[maemo-users] [maemo-users] FM Radio - suggestions

Since there isn't a Bugzilla category for the FM radio app yet, let me 
make this suggestion to the Nokia team here - and when the app is added 
to Bugzilla I'll put it there as well.

In the US, and IIRC in the rest of the world as well, FM radio stations 
are on 200kHz channel spacings, on frequencies with an odd 100 kHz digit 
- in other words, 87.5, 87.7, 87.9, 88.1, etc.

In the scan mode, scanning every 50 kHz is neither needed nor a good 
idea - you will stop scanning off frequency. Scan only (87.5 + .2N ) MHz 
and you will not have those problems.

If the user is tuning, let them step every 50 kHz - they may be using a 
crappy modulator which is off frequency.

Also, it would be nice if we could directly enter the frequency - if I 
*know* that I want to add 107.3 MHz, then let me just enter it.

Last - It would be nice to allow the alarm system to start the radio - 
for a clock radio function. This is *very* low priority as you can have 
an MP3 play, but it would be nice.
