The first time the FM radio is turned on on my Sansa Clip+, either from the menu or when it is selected as the start or wakeup screen, no frequency is tuned, resulting in hissing FM static. Once the radio sound is turned off, either by muting the sound using the "up" button, switching to music or mic recording or returning to the main menu by holding the "up" button, or if a frequency is tuned manually or from the preset list, the radio automatically tunes the last heard frequency every time the radio is turned back on in future, until the player is turned off, or in the case of manual tuning, the radio tunes correctly and then tunes the last heard frequency once it is turned off and then back on. It seems the select key can also be pressed twice to force tuning of the last heard frequency if it has been set from the preset list. This makes using the radio as a wakeup alarm impossible, because it always produces an FM hiss no matter what frequency was tuned when the player was turned off. If possible, the last frequency should be tuned immediately upon entering the radio the first time after the player is turned on. It would seem that this tuning may need to be forced in this case.
