So I go out to the garage today to drive to work. I start my car up and decide I want to switch from FM to AM. I push the band button and I guess the radio elves decided to give me a new selection. Anyone seen this?

I kinda wanna make a joke about people still listening to AM radio but other than the numbers looking low, maybe that's the other set of presets?

what if it's a commie signal from russia (can you see it from your house?)

do you get the normal stations after hitting BAND again?

When I hit BAND I get (in this order):
XM
AM
FM1
FM2

You know what's disturbing about "LW"...those are longwave frequencies (well 153kHz isn't). Weird.

Hey, if no one listened then they'd go out of business!

The LW is still there. It must be part of the radio that is usually disabled for the North American market but because of some unknown reason started working.

I wonder what other things are in there that we normally can't see?

Yeah do you have an option to select tv tuner?

Is it possible to reactivate the TV tuner? Is the hardware in the NA market radios? Any idea what it would take to make that work?

Is that weather band, like marine radios have?

Definitely haven't seen that before. What is it receiving/playing?

No, tv tuner hardware is not in the NA market radios. I was just curios if OP saw that menu item since he is seeing the other strange item.
