The lower right control knob should be labeled SCAN TUNE. If you push it, the radio scans to the next signal strong enough to receive. If you twist the knob it should allow you to move along the frequency band to a desirable freq. Be sure your FM transmitter is on and squawking. Once you have a decent channel, save it as a preset by hold the desired preset button down until in beeps.
