What is tuning resolution?

  1. Jan 24, 2015 #1
    I've checked the Internet and this forum, and while I notice the term, "tuning resolution" used in different contexts, I can't find a definition. Can anyone provide a clear and concise definition or explanation?

    We used it to describe the 'tuning' increments or discrete frequency steps of a digital receiver.

    For an old receiver like the R-1051 there were several models
    Some had 500hz "tuning resolution"
    other models had 100hz "tuning resolution"
